I am an Assistant Professor in the Information School at the University of Washington. I co-direct the DataLab. I study the Science of Science. My laboratory consists of millions of scholarly papers and the billions of links that connect these papers. I develop knowledge discovery tools to both study and facilitate science. In particular, I am interested in the origin of scholarly disciplines and how sociological and economic factors drive and slow the evolution of science.
