I am a sociologist interested in social movements, organizations,

and the political mobilization of firms and industries.

I have also studied advocacy organizations, protest processes, and grassroots organizing.  My research has appeared in the American Sociological Review, American Journal of Sociology, and other journals.

My book, Grassroots for Hire: Public Affairs Consultants in American Democracy,  was published by Cambridge University Press in 2014.
