I am a sociologist who writes on issues related to organized labor, social movements and comparative social policy. My research addresses questions at the intersection of work, policy and social change, asking: How can policies promote healthy and sustainable workplaces and communities? And when are such policies achieved? I employ a range of quantitative and qualitative methodological tools: survey analysis, comparative/historical research, event history analysis, ethnographic and structured interviewing, and mixed method approaches. Using these tools, my research can be organized into three streams: comparative policy analysis, the policy consequences of social movements, and workplace health and safety practices.
