1.2 Why Social Network Analysis?
1.2.1 Perspectives from colleagues
We come together to learn (more) about social network analysis (SNA) – for various reasons. In preparation for the class, I invited three colleagues who’re all doing interesting work with SNA to share a bit about their experiences (note some videos are only visible for UMN viewers):
Alejandro Andrade, PhD from Indiana University, now Data Scientist at ACT
Michael Brown, PhD from the University of Michigan, now Assistant Professor at Iowa State
Fan Ouyang, PhD from the University of Minnesota, now Assistant Professor at Zhejiang University
