My research interests are in economic sociology, urban sociology, and inequality. I am particularly interested in understanding how valuation processes inform questions of inequality. How do individuals, organizations, or markets determine what is valuable or worthwhile? How do those valuations dictate resource allocations? And, how do those valuations influence behavior? I grapple with these questions primarily in the context of state/local government finance and credit.
