Areas of Interest
political sociology, organizational behavior, social networks, and computational social science
My current work combines statistical, network, and computational methods with large-scale datasets to study social movements and organizational behavior. Particularly, I am interested in how primary and secondary stakeholder activism influences corporate political behavior and social responsibility.
