My primary research interest concerns governance relationships between public, private, and nonprofit organizations. More specifically, I study the role nonprofit organizations play in delivering governmental services, especially in the context of child welfare policy. My secondary research area focuses on the effects of organizational change on managers and individuals within the organizations. My dissertation examines how policy changes, such as allowing businesses to compete with government and nonprofits in foster care services, influence managerial decision-making in nonprofit agencies.
