David Liben-Nowell is a faculty member in the Department of Computer Science at Carleton.  His research interests include a variety of applications of the techniques of theoretical computer science to questions arising within and beyond computer science, especially the social sciences.  His work has focused particularly on large-scale information networks, particularly social networks, and their evolution.  David has also recently worked on problems in algorithmic game theory, information propagation, and psycholinguistics, and has just published a textbook on discrete math specifically geared for computer science students (Discrete Mathematics for Computer Science), which he rather hopes you might decide to read.
