CV: Curriculum Vitae
My research is concentrated in two areas in economic sociology: the study of wealth inequality and the study of complex organizations, particularly in China. Both research agendas explore the emergence of social structure and the subsequent effect of social structure on the behaviors of actors. I conduct research in two diverse contexts and on two types of actors (people and corporations) in order to study how some of the same principles operate in diverse contexts. In addition, by focusing on subjects that cross traditional disciplinary boundaries, I am able to draw on a broader set of ideas in answering the questions and to ask new questions that move beyond traditional academic borders.
