Personal profile


Main research areas

  • Sociological theory and method
  • Social network analysis
  • Quantitative methods

My ambition is to pursue theoretically informed empirical analyses of contemporary social issues. I rely heavily on survey-based data collection and quantitative methods, primarily applied to the study of social networks. My research interests span from methodological debates to analyses of network constraints and opportunities of organisations, firms, and individuals.

I currently serve as Program Director of WASP-HS, a national research program that fosters novel interdisciplinary knowledge in the humanities and social sciences about AI and autonomous systems and their impact on human and social development.
