My research is aimed at helping higher education leaders, policymakers, and the public make informed decisions. It lies at the intersection higher education studies, political economy, organizational sociology, and comparative politics. This transdisciplinary approach to inquiry reflects my belief that addressing the challenges facing societies today requires an approach that transcends the traditional disciplinary boundaries.
