Research


In general, I am interested in the relationship between race, organizations, and institutions. My research attempts to better understand how institutional structures affect people and organizations. In turn, my research examines how people and organizations affect these structures. From a practical perspective, my aim is to illustrate how disenfranchised actors can navigate the institutional landscape in which they operate so that they can be effective change agents. I have had papers published (or accepted) in the following journals: Journal of Management Inquiry, Sport Management Review, Journal of Sport Management, African Journal of Business and Economic Research, International Review for the Sociology of SportInternational Journal of Sport Management, Journal of Issues in Intercollegiate Athletics, and International Journal of Sport Management and Marketing, among others.

I am currently working on papers addressing the following:

  1. Social movements/activism
  2. Social responsibility
