Biographical Statements in Various Directories

RESEARCH AND ACADEMIC EXPERIENCE:

Most of my scholarship has focused on institutional change within and across countries. There have been two major questions which I have raised in my work (1) why do particular institutional arrangements and specific types of organizations emerge, and (2) what consequences follow from these institutional and organizational arrangements. I have published extensively on these two questions. For some years, most of my research and teaching have been not only historical but comparative in nature. While I have concentrated primarily on the study of American society, my work during the past fifteen years has focused on both twentieth century Europe and the United States.

I have been engaged in a complex, cross national and historical research agenda which attempts to explain why countries vary in their capacity to be innovative in science-based industries during the twentieth century. This research brings together the theoretical perspectives of my previous scholarship on institutional analysis, industrial sectors, major discoveries in biomedical science, and the governance of capitalist economies. Funding for this research agenda has been provided by the Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study, the Dutch government, the Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study in the Social Sciences, the National Science Foundation, the Humboldt Foundation (Germany), the Swedish Council for Research on Higher Education, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.

These interests have evolved into another large-scale research program in which I have been the co-principal organizer and investigator: The Study of Rare Events with Large Global Consequences (e.g., nuclear accidents, conflicts among and disintegration of nation states, crashes of financial markets, epidemics, climate change).
