a bit about me:


Jason Greenberg conducts award-winning research on: entrepreneurship, crowdfunding, innovation, and digital technology; social networks; labor markets (including “gig” work), diversity and inequality; organizational theory; (social) evaluation; categorization; and markets. Jason has published and forthcoming work that uses restricted access “big” data, novel experimental approaches he has developed, as well as (sociological) theoretical work.


Because new technologies and methods of organization and trade are fundamentally reshaping how and where we work, learn, and live, these topics are of considerable social-scientific interest and importance. Policy makers and employers, in turn, are interested in understanding, teaching, and hiring and employing individuals with skills in these areas.
