Research

My current research interests include public and nonprofit management, nonprofit finance, information technology, philanthropy, and public affairs education.

 

Nonprofit organizations are under extreme burdens to function well with limited resources. Thus, an overarching research question of my recent research is how nonprofit organizations could acquire resources and improve their capacity. One goal of my current research is to explore the resources for public and nonprofit organizations that lie in information technology adoption and public engagement.
