My current research projects explore the impacts of public-private partnerships and inter-governmental partnerships on the structure of public management systems and the development and allocation of scientific and technical human capital. This work is being conducted in three policy domains examining the following: 1) the impact of educational partnerships developed under the No Child Left Behind Act aimed at improving the quality of math and science instruction; 2) the development of public-private partnerships by public transportation agencies in response to outsourcing; and 3) the development of hybrid organizations through public-private partnerships in research organizations and technology-led economic development programs.
