Organization & Management
Goizueta Business School
My research draws on organization theory and economic sociology to study individual outcomes like attainment, entrepreneurship, and mobility; organizational behaviors like hiring, investing, pricing, and staffing; and organizational outcomes like founding, change, and survival. I emphasize how employees’ prior education and employment experiences influence network structures and dynamics.
My courses cover two primary topics: (1) strategic management and (2) social networks. Strategy courses focus on how to create and sustain advantages in highly competitive markets and industries. Networks courses focus on how social structures shape incentives and behaviors, presenting career and business opportunities to those who understand social networks and constraints to those who do not.
I received a Ph.D. in Business Administration from the University of California, Berkeley Haas School of Business; a MBA from the University of Chicago, Booth School of Business; and a BA in Economics from the Johns Hopkins University. Prior to entering academia, I worked at Classified Ventures, Intel, and Verizon Communications.
