Research Interests

I study nonprofit organizations, for-profit businesses, and the legal, cultural, and moral boundaries that separate the two sectors. In recent projects, I have investigated the fair trade and socially responsible investing industries, how entrepreneurs choose between nonprofit and for-profit forms, and social movement activism in the apparel industry during the 1990s. I teach courses in economic sociology and qualitative research methods.
