"Parent firm effects on founder turnover: parent success, founder legitimacy, and founder tenure,” with Warren Boeker, Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal, Volume 4, 2010.
My research interests revolve around new ventures and lie at the intersection of sociology and economics with an emphasis on the ways in which social structures impact new ventures such as accounting disclosure and resource acquisition. I am specifically interested in network analysis and its combination with economic theory to distinguish between the effects of social structure from economic incentives on misconduct in new ventures. Key concepts of interest are: entrepreneurship, firm strategy, corporate governance, networks, organizational misconduct, technology, and accounting manipulation.
