Social Networks Working Group

Friday, March 10, 2017

10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., lunch provided

Room 310 (Samuel Bronfman Building – 1001 Sherbrooke Street West)

The seminar features two 40-minute presentations followed by informal discussions over lunch.


Laura Doering, Assistant Professor of Strategy will be presenting her research (co-authored with Aruna Ranganathan at Stanford GSB) entitled:

“Not on the Same Page: Status Barriers to State-Private Ties in Economic Development.”

The project examines how relationships between state and private sector actors (which are assumed to be relatively homogeneous) can be shaped by status biases, and how this impacts economic development.


Brian Rubineau, Associate Professor of Organizational Behavior will be presenting his research (co-authored with Yisook Lim, Mike Neblo, & David Lazer) entitled:

“Charismatic bridging: Network state vs trait antecedents of leader emergence.”

The project conducts a within-individual analysis to identify the network antecedents of attaining leadership positions. This analysis examines individual, dyadic, and triadic network predictors involving both positive and negative ties.


All are invited to attend the seminar.

Montreal-area PhD students with interests in social network research are particularly encouraged to attend.
