Perry, Brea Sociology, College of Arts and Sciences / IUB
Bio: Brea Perry is an Associate Professor of Sociology at Indiana University, and received a Ph.D. in Sociology from IU in 2008. Prior to returning to Indiana in 2014, she was an Associate Professor at the University of Kentucky, where she founded and directed the interdisciplinary Health, Society, and Populations Program. Her research and teaching interests include social networks, medical sociology, mental illness, biosociology, social genetics, and quantitative methodology. One line of research focuses on complex interactions between genotypes, social statuses, and social environmental conditions (GxExE) in substance use pathways. Dr. Perry also studies personal social network dynamics and processes that accompany progression through illness careers. Much of her work employs egocentric social network analysis and multilevel and longitudinal modeling. Dr. Perry’s research has been funded by the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, the Spencer Foundation, and the McManus Foundation. She is currently the series editor of Advances in Medical Sociology.

Razo, Armando Political Science, College of Arts and Sciences / IUB
Bio: Professor Razo's research interests are in the field of comparative politics, with special interests in the political economy of development and comparative analysis of networks and institutions. His research and teaching center around two themes: (1) how political institutions in developing countries affect economic performance; and (2) the study of political institutions and political organization in nondemocratic settings. Current research projects include the development of an ontology and linguistic corpus for comparative analysis of networks in international development. He teaches courses on networks and institutions, quantitative contextual analysis, development, positive political economy, and Latin American politics. He is the author of Social Foundations of Limited Dictatorship, published by Stanford University Press in 2008, which advances a network theory of private policymaking. A student of economic history, he is also co-author with Stephen Haber and Noel Maurer of The Politics of Property Rights (2003).

Shen, Li Radiology and Imaging Sciences, School of Medicine / IUPUI
Bio: Dr. Li Shen holds a B.S. degree from Xi'an Jiao Tong University, an M.S. degree from Shanghai Jiao Tong University, and a Ph.D. degree from Dartmouth College, all in Computer Science. Dr. Shen is an Associate Professor of Radiology and Imaging Sciences at Indiana University School of Medicine (IUSM), and Associate Director of IU Center for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (CCBB). He is the Executive Director of the MICCAI Society Board of Directors. He is a member of the Center for Neuroimaging, the Center for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics, and the Stark Neurosciences Research Institute at IUSM, and IU Network Science Institute. He is also affiliated with Departments of CIS, ECE and Biostatistics, and School of Informatics and Computing at IUPUI. His research interests include medical image computing, bioinformatics, data mining, and network science. The central theme of his lab is focused on developing computational and informatics methods for integrative analysis of multimodal imaging data, high throughput "omics" data, fluid and cognitive biomarker data, and rich biological knowledge such as pathways and networks, with applications to various complex disorders. The ultimate goal is to improve mechanistic understanding of disease processes and treatment responses for early diagnosis and therapeutics. His research is primarily funded by NIH (NLM, NIA, NIBIB, NIAAA, NCATS), NSF, DOD and NCAA. Further information about Dr. Shen's research activities is available at

Winecoff, William Political Science, College of Arts and Sciences / IUB
Bio: I am Assistant Professor of Political Science at Indiana University Bloomington. Most of my research considers the politics of global finance and other networked systems. Within this, I primarily focus on structural power in the world economy, the political nature of supposedly-technocratic economic institutions, theories of hegemonic financial (in)stability, the relationship between firm-level economic agents and political systems, and the ways in which changes in demographics and predominant technologies impact political economy. Most of this research employs quantitative methodologies. I teach courses pertaining to international political economy, international relations, and network methodologies. I took a Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2013 and a B.A. in Economics from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale in 2007.
