I am a PhD student examining the relationship between communication patterns and group processes in information diffusion through an online community.

I’m exploring the social networks of virtual world Second Life, which displays social properties reflective of offline social life.

Because it’s digital, I can capture social interaction in ways which real life methods are unable to offer.

Using social network analysis and surveys, I intend to understand how the hardware of interpersonal ties effects the software of interpersonal interaction.

See my homepage for research, MySpace for me, Flickr for images and the Social Simulation Research Lab for me in-world.

    If you are, though, let me know and we’ll take it from there!

    All the best,
