Scholar + Organizer of Networks and Organizations

What I do

My research and writing (MA in Sociology; PhD in Management) have analyzed how organizations, networks, and movements work and how they work together. My goal is to better understand how real change happens.
My true calling: to connect ideas with the people I love best, people who want to be useful, people, as poet Marge Piercy writes, “who dive into work head first/without dallying in the shallows….”
