I am interested in modeling emergent multi-level systems and processes. I have modeled dyadic and small team dynamics in high-reliability organizations (Morgan, Morgan, and Ritter 2010). More recently, I have contributed to work examining the effects of memory and environment on the formation and growth of networks (Zhao et al submitted). In addition to some experience with computational methods and human computer interaction (Morgan et al., 2013), I am familiar with experimental methods (Ritter et al. 2012). My theoretical interests include organizational learning (Paik et al. 2010), sense making, and more generally the intersection of culture and power in daily life. My current projects include examining role selection in small groups with Lynn Smith-Lovin and cohort effects on the transfer of wealth with Lisa Keister and Hang Young Lee.
