VOLUNTEERISM & VOLUNTEER MANAGEMENT
This line of research explores two aspects of volunteerism that most interest me based on my personal experiences -- managing volunteers in ways that maximize their contributions to the organizations and clients they serve, and membership trends in voluntary associations.

Using the U.S. airline industry as context, I study multiple topics regarding labor unions and collective bargaining. And in higher education, I've been exploring the issue of whether or not graduate research and teaching assistants are employees (in addition to students) and eligible to become unionized.

human resource management
My published and in-progress work in this area explores employment discrimination and workforce diversity issues, as well as the link between strategic HR practices and employee, group, and organizational outcomes. I've also written about web-based recruitment practices, and HRM in nonprofit organizations.
