Josh Bruce

I’m a PhD candidate in sociology at Duke University , where I specialize in economic and organization sociology. Substantively, my research focuses on careers and organizations in knowledge-intensive economic sectors (e.g., scientists in the federal government, faculty at research universities). I am especially interested in the returns to human and social capital for individuals and the organizations they interact with as they accumulate over time. These returns come in the form of income for individuals and the stock of technological innovations for organizations. I employ both conventional econometrics and newly developed computational  and causal inference  methods to study these phenomena.
