Research Interests

Awards & Honors

    My research interests center on understanding complex institutional environments. My primary area of study has been the institution of intercollegiate athletics. This includes understanding how athletic administrators effectively lead in this type of environment, how athletes are affected by the contradictory expectations placed on their leaders, and how this affects spending habits within athletic departments. I also maintain an interest in understanding how institutional complexity affects college athletes.
