Jimi Adams

University of Colorado Denver


The focus of Jimi Adams's research is on how networks promote or constrain the spread of things like diseases and ideas through a population. Increasingly, this work focuses on how interdisciplinary scientific fields are arranged and evolve through time. Previously, this has involved examining patterns that contribute to HIV/AIDS transmission and prevention in the US and sub-Saharan Africa. Dr. Adams' previous SNA-related teaching includes a conceptually oriented survey course for undergraduates, a graduate seminar on social network data collection methods in health research, and SNA (for graduate students and a number of shorter seminars) - each drawing students from a wide-range of disciplinary backgrounds.
