Scholarship. As an economic sociologist I study innovation in markets, regulation, organizations, and professions. My research focuses on the emergence of new market institutions and their ability to persist through time. Through my work I highlight how the design and implementation of rules affects inequality and is shaped by power and culture.
I completed my doctoral studies in the Department of Sociology at the University of Virginia. Currently, I am a Research Affiliate in the Program in Environmental Design at the University of Colorado, Boulder, continuing the work I did as a postdoctoral researcher there on a project about activism and social justice in design professions.
