I am a computational sociologist who studies how social labels, and the uncertainty we have about them, work in social interaction. How do we measure the uncertainty around the meaning of a label, and how does that uncertainty affect how we use and understand it? My research is rooted in social psychology and cultural sociology and I tie it to other areas such as politics, health, gender, work and occupations, and criminology. I build open source software that facilitates research on identity processes in social interaction.
