At a high level, my research examines the (mis)alignment of culture with policy during reforms. My dissertation, titled Institutional Logics and Economic Development in Latin America, explores how the interrelationships between path dependence and institutional change shape policy reforms to Argentina’s and Mexico’s state oil firms.

Several of my projects have been published in academic outlets:

Original teaching materials include a reading list (available upon request) of a graduate-level introductory seminar on institutional logics. Piloted as a virtual independent study with a PhD student, the full seminar will informally debut in Spring 2021. In addition to providing a conceptual and meta-theoretical overview of the institutional logics perspective, the seminar aims to build participants’ skills, both to familiarize themselves with unfamiliar literatures, and to build writing habits through manuscript editing, revising, and reviewing.
