Teaching/Research
David Melamed's include group processes, social networks, computational modeling, stratification, and others areas. His research focuses on how social structures (e.g., network structures, status structures, class structures) shape individual outcomes. Examples include how network structures shape prosocial behaviors, how status structures shape small group inequalities, and how macro-level class structures shape class and occupational outcomes. Some of this work has been supported by the Army Research Office and the National Science Foundation.
