Interests. My research lies at the intersection of economic sociology, organizations, professions, and political sociology. It aims to develop a sociological perspective for examining interdisciplinary subjects such as regulation, implementation, innovation, and designation by law. Among others, my studies emphasize the role of organizations and their work in shaping market institutions, their rules and practices. For instance, using historical data, my dissertation project highlights how organizational identity work shapes the form and meaning of regulation through time. The projects that rely on survey data show the effect of organizational culture and organizational status on the extent to which organizations implement innovations. In the project I am working on with the team at the University of Colorado Boulder, as I do in most of my research, I pay special attention to professional organizations and their power to mobilize resources and shape not only markets for professional work, but also policy design and its implementation.
