Organizational sociology and social networks
My research focuses on the institutional influence on organizations, the relational and the network processes within and between organizations. I make use of these approaches to understand scientific and online communities, collaboration in health care, and professional and societal collaboration in disasters. Attending to the field in which organizations and their member operate helps in explaining their relation choices. Understanding relational processes allows us to explain unintended outcomes and the struggle to reach common goals. My focus in analyzing organizing takes the structures as well as the dynamics of social networks as a methodological useful instrument.
