Research Summary

My research combines computational tools with unique empirical contexts such as modern art, jazz and the executive search market to study how social structure and differentiation shape valuation in creative and managerial contexts.  Examples of research questions include how does differentiation of a producer’s work and her social network relate to her outcomes such as media visibility and  third-party success? In the context of executive labor market, I am working with an executive search firms to examine determine drivers  (e.g. gender, prior mobility and atypicality) of success in the search process.
