His primary interests include inclusive models of economic development, distributed governance, regenerative economics, and mental healthcare delivery.

His research has appeared in such journals as the American Sociological Review, Administrative Science Quarterly, Strategic Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Research Policy, and Harvard Business Review.
