Welcome! I’m a writer, researcher and social scientist who studies social change, green building, energy and organizations. I am currently a AAAS Science Policy and Technology Fellow at the Department of Energy in the Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability.  I teach sociology at Bucknell University.

You can learn more about my research and publications on green and sustainable building practices, nonprofit organizations and children’s service provision. A recent chapter I wrote is in the new book Constructing Green: The Social Structures of Sustainability.

If you’re a student, I have resources for you regarding graduate school, doing well in class and getting recommendation letters. In 2015, I will be leading the Bucknell in DC program. I sometimes write short articles about topics that interest me on my blog.
