My current project is to characterize the drivers of knowledge within scientific communities with an emphasis on biomedical knowledge and concepts. This is a continuation of previous work in which I evaluated the influence of social and linguistic factors on the evolution of the microbiome concept. I utilize a hybrid of qualitative and quantitative approaches from sociolinguistics, sociology, and computational history and philosophy of science.
