RESEARCH & TEACHING
I'm a public and nonprofit management scholar and enthusiast. At the broadest level, I'm dedicated to research and teaching involved in improving our public and nonprofit institutions that help humankind flourish. I've coauthored several edited books (Amazon links to the right) and dozens articles and chapters. Most of these are available in pre-print format open access.
See my CV (pdf) or publications page (quick links) for a full list aimed at different dimensions of this broader endeavor.
My research has been covered in the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times. I'm interested in public servants. What makes them choose government and nonprofit careers of sacrifice and service? Why do they behave benevolently at and through work? What causes them to behave contrary to these more benevolent inclinations? If these, or related questions, spark an interest, please feel free to reach out. firstname.lastname@example.org
I also direct the Public Service Lab where I involve many of our great graduate students in mentored research projects.
