Research

My research interests revolve around how audience perceptions of organizations and individuals influence behavior in markets. I am particularly interested in understanding how perceptions of success (status, economic, rewards) constrain behavior. Related topics include: status, authenticity, impression management. I do research in the sports, food, private equity, and health industries.
