Foster School of Business, University of Washington
Brandon is coming to the Milgard School of Business from the University of Washington-Bothell School of Business, where he worked as a full-time lecturer for four years. There he taught entrepreneurship, global strategy, and strategic management courses at both the undergraduate and graduate level.
Brandon’s research interests revolve around new ventures and lie at the intersection of sociology and economics with an emphasis on the ways in which social structures impact new ventures such as accounting disclosure and resource acquisition. Brandon is specifically interested in network analysis and its combination with economic theory to distinguish between the effects of social structure from economic incentives on misconduct in new ventures. Key concepts of interest are: entrepreneurship, firm strategy, corporate governance, networks, organizational misconduct, technology, and accounting manipulation.
