I am a mixed methods sociologist focused on theory generating studies of institutional change in gray markets situated between the boundaries of law. I work at the intersections of economic sociology, criminological theory, and political-cultural approaches to market behavior to explore how micro-level social processes influence field-level structural change. My current work is exploring how the current regulatory climate is configuring the U.S. cannabis industry. My research has been published in Poetics, Social Currents and is forthcoming in Sociological Focus.
