I am Professor of Sociology at the University of California, San Diego where I am also founding faculty of the Halicioğlu Data Science Institute. For many years, I was a senior research associate at INRA, Paris, and currently, I am scholar in residence at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies in Cologne, Germany.
I wrote two books on market creation. Great Surprise of the Small Transformation: Demise of Communism and Rise of the Private Sector in Hungary, was published by Michigan University Press, the second one, co-authored with Alya Guseva, Plastic Money: Constructing Markets for Credit Cards in Eight Postcommunist Countries, by Stanford University Press.
I have published articles on the post-communist transition, on small entrepreneurs, consumer credit, and payment card markets in journals including the American Sociological Review, American Journal of Sociology, Theory and Society, Socio-Economic Review, Social Science Research, Research on Sociology of Organizations, Journal of Comparative Economics, Research in the Sociology of Work, as well as various chapters in edited volumes. I am currently working on the problem of rationality and uncertainty in two different contexts: credit assessment and the use of science in risk management.
I have been a member of SASE since 2005. I am the co-founder and co-organizer of the Finance and Society Network, served on the Executive Council between 2012 and 2015, and as Treasurer between 2015 and 2018.
