ABIGAIL Z. JACOBS


I am a computational social scientist in the Management of Organizations group at the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley.

My current research is primarily focused on the social structure of the opioid epidemic, organizations, and social networks. Find my academic work on Google Scholar

I am currently a postdoc with Toby Stuart and Mathijs De Vaan in the Management of Organizations group at the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley. I hold a PhD in Computer Science, which focused on computational tools for understanding social networks, advised by Aaron Clauset (University of Colorado Boulder). During my PhD I was fortunate to spend time at Microsoft Research NYC, mentored by Duncan Watts (intern 2015, 2016 & consulting researcher, 2015-2017), and have funding from an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. I previously received a BA in Mathematical Methods in the Social Sciences and Mathematics from Northwestern University.
