My sociological interest is how we try to steer social change and why and with what consequence, we succeed or fail. I received my PhD at the University of California, Santa Barbara and was Assistant Professor at New York University. My empirical work includes studies, among others, of commitment to mental institutions, rehabilitation to work, conflict in school, threats and violence at work, insider trading and exclusion from the job market.
