Introductory & Advanced Network Analysis - ICPSR Summer Program

I served as TA for the Introductory & Advanced Network Analysis courses at the ICPSR Summer Program in 2019 and 2020. These were opportunities to interact with students, mostly graduate students, with backgrounds in different disciplines and academic traditions. The introductory course focuses on the basics of visualization in networks, descriptive and exploratary network analysis, collecting network data and research design. The focus in the advanced course was inferential network analysis, including exponential random graph models and its varieties, stochastic actor oriented models, local structure graph models, and their implementation in R.
