I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Sociology at the University of Michigan, with affiliation to the Erb Institute. I study the political and cultural construction of markets. My dissertation concerns the proliferation of niches in consumer markets, the sources of this process, and how it interacts with political pressures on markets. I have also conducted research on employment and corporate interlocks among large firms, gourmet food trucks, and the environmental movement. Another interest I have is in integrating big data into sociological research. My research on the political determinants of corporate employment during recessions is published in the American Journal of Sociology.
