Anna Sokolova got her BA in Sociology in 2018 from the National Research University Higher School of Economics in Moscow, Russia. There she worked as a research assistant in the Laboratory for Studies in Economic Sociology and as a teaching assistant in research methodology and economic sociology. In 2020 Anna completed her MSc in Sociology and Social Research at Utrecht University in the Netherlands. In her master thesis project, Anna develops game-theoretic models of investments in dyadic and institutional embeddedness and tests their predictions with the data collected from a laboratory experiment. Following her research internship at Utrecht University, Anna works on a project that investigates how network structure of online marketplace communities affects cooperative behavior of sellers. In her PhD thesis Anna investigates how inequality structures emerge in social networks due to the cumulative advantage of social capital. Formal modelling, experimental designs, and network data will be used to answer the research questions of the thesis.
