RESEARCH INTERESTS

My research interests bridge the nonprofit, public, and private sectors with particular focus on individual employee values, lobbying, and collaboration.  In this effort, I explore the similarities and differences of employee values of individuals working in for-profit social enterprises, local government, and nonprofit organizations.  I also examine the impacts of government regulations on nonprofit lobbying expenditures and board governance practices. In the area of collaboration, I develop new typologies and frameworks that explain how the public, nonprofit, and private sectors work together to address social and environmental issues.
