Department of Psychology, Arizona State University
Olga Kornienko received her Ph.D. in Family and Human Development from the Sanford School of Social and Family Dynamics at Arizona State University. Her research uses social network analysis to understand how networks form, how social influence operates in networks, and how network position affects health and development across the life-span. She is interested in disentangling the reciprocal associations between social networks and salivary biomarkers, health, and behavior. Her research seeks to expand contemporary understanding of social context to include social networks and examine their role in biobehavioral processes.
