My central research interest is in the role that morality plays in organizational environments. My dissertation is a comparative study of the creation of official organizational moral standards in two settings: medical ethics in physicians associations, and belief standards in a large Protestant denomination. I am currently in the process of developing a book manuscript based on my dissertation research.
