Research details

I am an Associate Professor in Organizational Theory, Strategy, and Entrepreneurship at the Tepper School of Business, Carnegie Mellon University. I received my PhD in Sociology from Stanford University. My research investigates social factors that facilitate or undermine individuals' ability to coordinate. In particular, I focus on network relations, employing a variety of methods, including content analysis, historical data, and experimental approaches. Substantively, my main areas of interests are fraud and entrepreneurship.
