My main interest is macrosociology, the study of society as a whole over time. Within this very broad topic, I have two areas of interest. 

My first interest includes economic, organizational and cultural sociology, especially national consumer markets. Right now my research is focused on these topics.

My second interest includes long-term global history and economic development. This interest has so far been reflected in my teaching, but I have started writing a textbook for this field.
