I study the differences in managerial behavior in private, public and nonprofit health care organizations. I have also started a new project that examines the factors that influence the decisions of CEOs in Japanese NGOs (non-governmental organizations). An underlying theme of my research and teaching interests are social equity and justice, particularly in health care and education.



I teach courses in nonprofit management, Introduction to Public Administration, and diversity management.
