My current research interests center on the impact of the New Economy and technology on inequality and class stratification in the U. S. and Brazil. In the U.S. this has taken the shape of a qualitative study of software startups in the Baltimore/DC metropolitan area. With the collaboration of graduate students, founders, managers, and programmers have been interviewed in 34 software firms. My focus in Brazil is the development of software entrepreneurship through a network of technology incubators, and has included interviews in three cities and 17 software firms both in and out of incubators. Most of my earlier research has been at the intersection of stratification, race, and gender.
