Phil Chodrow seated on a bench, smiling leaning towards the viewer.


I’m Dr. Phil Chodrow, an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at Middlebury College. My pronouns are he/him/his.

You can email me at or stop by my office, Room 218 in 75 Shannon St. 


My research focuses on network science, the study of connected systems in society and nature. I draw on methods from applied mathematics, machine learning, statistics, and physics. I also work on data science projects to promote equity and sustainability. I have awesome collaborators.


In Spring 2023, I am teaching CSCI 0451: Machine Learning.

I am on a mission. I teach other courses. Students might want to take a look at my FAQs.


I give an invited seminar at Smith College on math models of social hierarchies. I also speak to the math department's professional development seminar about grad school and academic careers.
New preprint! I led a team of mathematicians in writing an overview article on "Data science and social justice in the mathematics community." The team is Quindel Jones, Andrés R. Vindas Meléndez, Ariana Mendible, Manuchehr Aminian, Heather Zinn Brooks, Nathan Alexander, Carrie Diaz Eaton, and myself. We are all thrilled to see this work out in the world!
Physicist Katherine Wright, the Deputy Editor of Physics Magazine, publishes an article on The Uneven Spread of Citations in academic science. I am quoted in this article regarding my experience writing Citation Diversity Statements (CDSs) in two papers.
I give an invited talk on generative hypergraph clustering in the Applied and Computational Mathematics Seminar at Dartmouth University. Slides.
I attend the Joint Mathematics Meetings in Boston, MA. There I speak on "Developments, Challenges, and Opportunities in Hypergraph Network Data Science" (slides). I've prepared a short bibliography of papers that I find especially useful in hypergraph data science.
