Studying networks to help women succeed in science

Northwestern University’s Noshir Contractor is using his network expertise to help women succeed in research. He has examined both the determinants that help women persist in networks and the role of social networks among women who work in the specialized area of gender and sustainability. Using data from Facebook and LinkedIn pages and interviews, Contractor now is working to implement a social media recommender system for this group that will enhance cross-cultural mentoring.
