Carter T. Butts

I am currently an associate professor in the Department of Sociology and the Institute for Mathematical Behavioral Sciences at the University of California, Irvine. For those who are interested, an always mildly out of date copy of my vita is available here. (See also my faculty profile, which may or may not be slightly less out of date.)

I joined the UCI faculty in 2002, after receiving my Ph.D. from the Department of Social and Decision Sciences at Carnegie Mellon University. I also hold an M.S. from Carnegie Mellon University, and a B.S. from Duke University. I currently serve as an area editor for the journal Computational and Mathematical Organization Theory, and serve on the editorial boards of the Journal of Mathematical Sociology and Structure and Dynamics. I have served as a council member of the American Sociological Association's Section on Mathematical Sociology, hold paper awards from the ASA's Sections on Mathematical Sociology, Rationality and Society, and Aging and the Life Course, and am a recipient of the Linton C. Freeman Award from the International Network for Social Network Analysis.

At UCI, I am a member of the Institute for Mathematical Behavioral Sciences, the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2), and the California Institute for Hazards Research. I am also a member of the UCI Center for Organizational Research, the Center for Machine Learning and Intelligent Systems, and the Center for Emergency Response Technology, and am the coordinator of the UCI Social Network Research Group.
