I am interested in entrepreneurship and the creation of new industries, particularly when the logic of the new firm is related to solving environmental or social problems. In my dissertation, I study the emergence of the carbon offset industry. In one dissertation paper, I contrast two carbon offset policymaking structures, each of which involves private sector actors in creating carbon offset policies. I demonstrate how these alternative policymaking structures tend to different patterns of policy innovation and private sector interaction with policymakers. In my job market paper, I focus on institutional entrepreneurship in the nascent carbon offsets industry. I investigate whether firms that help to build the regulative institutions for the carbon offset industry subsequently perform better.
In a related stream of research, my colleague Nachiket Bhawe and I investigate the entrepreneurial resource accumulation process. We posit that an entrepreneur needs to accumulate various types of resources and that certain orders of resource accumulation are more likely to lead to improved performance. In one paper, we use an agent-based simulation to illustrate this concept and explore contingencies of our ordering hypotheses. In a second paper, "Horse before the cart: Opportunity value and the order of resource accumulation we test our ordering hypotheses on the Kauffman Firm Survey data. We recently received the KFS Promising Paper Award for this work.
