I am Professor of Sociology and Business at the University of California, Berkeley. I hold a B.A. in history (1982, University of Toronto), an M.B.A. (1985, University of Toronto), and a Ph.D. in organizational behavior and industrial relations (1990, University of California, Berkeley).  I worked at Duke University's Fuqua School of Business from 1990 to 1994, at Cornell University's Johnson Graduate School of Management from 1994 to 1999, and Columbia University's Graduate School of Business from 1998 to 2007.  I joined U.C. Berkeley in July 2006.

I study how organizations, the fields in which they are embedded, and the careers of their members and employees evolve. I investigate questions that relate to organizational stability and change:  How do new kinds of organizations emerge and how do new industries develop?  How strong are the forces that impel or inhibit change in existing organizations' structures, strategies, and actions?  What are the consequences of organizational change for organizations themselves and for their employees?  How does industry evolution affect social structures?  My current work involves American magazines, U.S. wineries, Chinese listed firms, and the emerging marijuana market in several U.S. states.
