Molly Copeland

I specialize in social networks and medical sociology. As a PhD candidate at Duke Sociology, I'm interested in how social relationships can help or harm health. My research explores domains like mental health, which might not seem directly contagious, but still have a social component. My dissertation and current research projects apply network methods to examine school peer networks, depression, self-harm, and substance use in adolescence, and how these relationships affect adult health.
