I am an assistant professor of sociology at the University at Albany, SUNY, working at the intersection of economic sociology, organizations, the sociology of science and knowledge, and political sociology. In 2013-14 I will be a member of the Institute for Advanced Study, in Princeton, NJ.
My first book, Creating the Market University: How Academic Science Became an Economic Engine, was published last year by Princeton University Press, and received the Social Science History Association’s President’s Book Award. My current research looks at the role played by experts, particularly economists, in U.S. public policy. Focusing on three policy domains — antitrust policy, antipoverty policy, and S&T policy — it looks at the normative, as well as positive, consequences of expert knowledge, and explores the multiple paths through which experts have intended and unintended consequences.
