My current research interests primarily concern the sociology of work and labor markets. I am interested in how companies transmit their view of the ideal worker and how people internalize these views as desirable and worthwhile characteristics of good citizens. I am also interested in political and economic impacts of labor markets and work arrangements on workers in the United States and other countries.
