This page is a work in progress. My advising philosophy will be posted here soon.
In the meantime, check out the info below and/or my interview w/Rich Makadok's Strategy Research Virtual Proseminar Series.
In the video, we discuss my approach to developing theoretically-motivated, phenomenon-focused research ideas. The assignments for my methods seminar for doctoral students follow this approach. Maybe it will be helpful to you...
Prospective Post-doctoral Fellows
The University of Michigan offers postdoctoral research fellowships in science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM), economics, and political science, coupled with faculty mentoring, professional development, and academic networking opportunities. U-M seeks applicants whose research, teaching, and service will contribute to diversity and equal opportunity in higher education. The program is particularly interested in scholars with the potential to bring to their research and undergraduate teaching the critical perspective that comes from their non-traditional educational background or understanding of the experiences of groups historically underrepresented in higher education.
As a tenured faculty member committed to mentoring early career scholars, I am eligible and willing to serve as a faculty mentor for applicants to the President's Postdoctoral Fellowship. Please contact me if you would like to discuss this possibility.
Prospective Pre-doctoral Students
1) Check out the Michigan Ross Bridges to Doctoral Fellows Program.
The Ross Bridges to Doctoral Fellows Program offers a 12-month, full-time certificate that prepares individuals who hold a bachelor's or master's degree to successfully transition into full-time doctoral studies. The program is made possible by the University of Michigan Rackham Merit Fellowship, which supports students with diverse backgrounds, experiences, and goals who desire pre-doctoral preparation.
2) Check out the Michigan Summer Research Opportunity Program.
Are you (a) entering your junior or senior year of college in 2021; (b) interested in learning how to conduct academic research; (c) not currently enrolled at the University of Michigan (U-M); and (d) a member of a group that is underrepresented among graduate students in a social science discipline either in the U.S. or at the University of Michigan? If you answered "Yes." to (a), (b), (c), and (d), then I might have a summer research assistantship for you! Please list me as a potential faculty mentor when you apply so I will receive your application.
The University of Michigan's Rackham Graduate School's Summer Research Opportunity Program (SROP) aims to expand access and opportunity to diverse students as a pathway to doctoral studies at U-M. SROP participant benefits include a stipend, faculty mentorship, a GRE prep course, room & board at U-M, and much more.
I am eager to work with SROP participants on research projects related to entrepreneurship; diversity, equity & inclusion; inequality; mobility; and/or strategy. More details on the "Publications" and "Projects" pages.
Participants will learn to review research, construct theories, design research projects, collect data, and conduct statistical analyses. At the end of the 10-week experience, participants will posses a much deeper understanding of social science research and opportunities to continue their work in a doctoral program.
