My research mostly focuses on social innovation as a field.  Instead of studying industries within the field, such as technology and innovation, my interest is in building support for social innovation at a macro level.  This includes building support through research in local, regional, state, and federal governments; policy makers; philanthropy; business and CSR; and universities.  I mostly focus on building support in America’s political and economic context, but I occasionally study the needs for and am very interested in working with the developing world and the bottom of the pyramid.
