My current research agenda, largely collaborative, includes: construction of identity (conflict over implementation of census race and ethnicity categories); comparative analysis of US and French information society public policy (digital divide); social media activism (Azerbaijani political elites); historical analysis of data archives to e-science; bibliometric analysis of public administration journals; and historical policy analysis of interorganizational network failure (disaster preparation and response).
