Topics interested in supervising

I am interested in supervising PhDs in economic, political and comparative/historical sociology that take a broad range of methodological approaches, both qualitative and quantitative. In addition, I am interested in working with students using social network analysis, computational text analysis, and other innovative quantitative methods, on a wide array of topics.
