|Baggetta, Matthew||Governance and Management, School of Public and Environmental Affairs / IUB|
Bio: Matthew Baggetta studies the civic implications of membership organizations. Such groups can be seen as sites where social network ties are formed and reinforced among individuals and as nodes in networks of membership and non-membership organizations. Baggetta is particularly interested in the selection of individuals into and out of membership groups and the possible causal effects of the organizations on the individuals within them.
|Barnes, Priscilla||Applied Health Science, School of Public Health / IUB|
Bio: Dr. Priscilla Barnes' research interests are in public health systems and services. More specifically, she examines inter-organizational factors that influence the quality of preventative services that disadvantaged populations receive within the U.S. public health system.

|Fulton, Brad R.||School of Public and Environmental Affairs / IUB|
Bio: Dr. Fulton is a sociologist who uses network analysis to examine how individuals interact within organizations and how organizations interact with one another. As organizations seek to become more diverse—both in their internal composition and external collaborations—his research examines how organizations navigate internal differences and manage external networks. Dr. Fulton’s research within organizations integrates social capital theory and network analysis to examine how a group’s social composition and social interactions interact to influence its outcomes. His research across organizations examines the collaborative partnerships organizations form to provide social services and he analyze how their interorganizational networks influence the types of programs they offer.

|Razo, Armando||Political Science, College of Arts and Sciences / IUB|
Bio: Professor Razo's research interests are in the field of comparative politics, with special interests in the political economy of development and comparative analysis of networks and institutions. His research and teaching center around two themes: (1) how political institutions in developing countries affect economic performance; and (2) the study of political institutions and political organization in nondemocratic settings. Current research projects include the development of an ontology and linguistic corpus for comparative analysis of networks in international development. He teaches courses on networks and institutions, quantitative contextual analysis, development, positive political economy, and Latin American politics. He is the author of Social Foundations of Limited Dictatorship, published by Stanford University Press in 2008, which advances a network theory of private policymaking. A student of economic history, he is also co-author with Stephen Haber and Noel Maurer of The Politics of Property Rights (2003).
