Presentation

Who creates change in markets and other financial institutions? My research for the past 15 years has investigated this question in a variety of empirical domains, ranging from amateur investors in the United States to the global wealth management profession. I'm interested in how things get done--what social actors actually do in their daily lives--and how that aggregates to the macro-level of financial markets, culture and political institutions. My work intersects with the literatures of political economy, anthropology, social
psychology and behavioral finance. At present, I am writing a book for Harvard University Press on an elite occupational group within finance, and its impact on international law and stratification. Previously, my research examined the effects of diversity and decision-making processes on the performance of investment groups.
