I am one of 13 siblings in my family. Growing up, long before my formal Ph.D, I would often think about the structure in implicit networks of individuals which I intuited from their social interactions. So, it is serendipitous that I fell into this research. My undergraduate degree is in Physics, but could have easily been in English Literature. For fun, I write songs about 3D printed AI robot takeover and other dystopian topics for dive bar open mics.
