In general, I am interested in how social actors influence (or are influenced by) organizations and institutions. Mostly informed by institutional theory, my research has led to a better understanding of institutional actors' experience within organizations and institutions.
As an example of my work, see my 2018 paper on institutional disruption or my 2020 paper published in Organization discussing the institution of sport as a site for social change. My 2021 paper in Sport Management Education Journal discusses how unpaid internships leads to racial inequality in the sport industry.
Moreover, I am currently writing a book (under contract with Cornell University/ILR Press) that explores how organizations can seek a pathway that leads toward antiracism. I conducted interviews with leaders spanning various industries, including sport, entertainment, media, and education, among others.
To date, I have authored or co-authored more than 30 peer-reviewed journal articles. These papers are published (or accepted) in the following journals: Organization, Journal of Management Inquiry, Sport Management Review, Journal of Sport Management, African Journal of Business and Economic Research, International Review for the Sociology of Sport, International Journal of Sport Management, Journal of Issues in Intercollegiate Athletics, and International Journal of Sport Management and Marketing, among others.
