His previous research has more-broadly examined how firms compete in labor markets. His papers have analyzed how firms' training practices adapt to local competition, how hospitals adapted their strategies for staffing registered nurses over the recession, how legislation mandating impasse arbitration affected collective bargaining, and how the co-location problem of dual career couples affects men's and women's careers.
