I have been involved in sociological research with faculty at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln for nearly a decade. As an undergraduate student I worked on several projects ranging from human social networks to finite automata models of human behavior. After receiving my BA in Sociology I was employed on staff with the Social Networks Research Group (SNRG) sociology lab, where I worked as a software and systems engineer on a large scale epidemiological simulation engine under the supervision of Dr. Bilal Khan for about two and a half years. I began work on my master’s degree in sociology in the fall of 2019, and I now work under the supervision of Dr. Regina Werum studying the effects of global climate change on social unrest. The project is funded through a grant in partnership with the computer science department.
