He completed his B.A. in International Studies at the University of Oregon, his M.A. in Sociology from Rutgers University, and Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of California, Santa Barbara. His dissertation research was funded by the Social Science Research Council-Sloan Foundation and the National Science Foundation, and focused on organizational change and gender segregation in American higher education since the early 1970s. He is particularly interested in the ways that social networks and culture (shared categories, meanings, schema, etc.) reciprocally shape each other.
