I'm a Professor at the University of Kentucky in the Gatton College of Business and Economics. I'm in the Management department, and hold the Chellgren Endowed Chair position. The school intends to build the strongest department in the world in the field of organizations and networks. As part of this effort, they have created the LINKS center for social network analysis.

My primary research interest is social network analysis. I also have an interest in cultural domains and knowledge management. You can find out more about me here:

I'm a Senior Editor at Organization Science, and sit on the editorial boards of Journal of Management, Computational and Mathematical Organizational Theory, Journal of Social Structure, and Field Methods. I am a past President of INSNA, the professional association for social network researchers, and remain a member of the board of directors. I also founded and continue to manage the SOCNET listserv, as well as the UCINET group. I am also a CARMA Short Course Instructor.

My wife and I also run a small software publishing company called Analytic Technologies. We publish UCINET, NetDraw, KeyPlayer, and Anthropac.

When time permits, I do some management consulting focusing on understanding and improving social networks within organizations. Here's an essay on the network structures of innovation.

We have two dogs, George and Molly. Here are some pictures of George as a puppy. See also later pictures.
