Please feel free to reach out about any topics on which I have expertise, including quantitative methods, text analysis, network analysis, American political behavior, or civic studies. You can reach me at sarah.shugars [at] or find me on Twitter @Shugars.

I especially encourage graduate/undergraduate students and young scholars in industry to reach out for advice, mentoring, or feedback.

If you are a network scientist, or think you might be, you may be interested in joining these groups in which I am active:

Women in Network Science (WiNS)

Society of Young Network Scientists (SYNS)

If you are considering applying to Northeastern’s Network Science program, or considering a PhD program in general, I’d be more than happy to chat. Folks who are first generation to college (like me!) or otherwise new to the PhD process are especially encouraged to reach out.
