I'm Dan Wang, and I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Sociology at Stanford University. In fall 2013, I will be Assistant Professor of Management and (by courtesy) Sociology at Columbia University's Graduate School of Business. My research interests are in economic and organizational sociology, migration and globalization, the sociology of knowledge and innovation, and network analysis. Primarily, I study how organizations manage, share, and transform knowledge across cultural and institutional boundaries--for example, my dissertation focuses on the relationship between skilled return migration and the global flow of knowledge and skills. I'm also a big proponent of computational social science (update, 10/11/2012: apparently, I also now blog about this). You can find links to my CV (pdf), publications, working papers, teaching notes, and other research related items here.

If you have any questions or comments, email me at djwang -at- stanford -dot- edu.

Note: You might be looking for Wang Dan, an outspoken leader of the 1989 Tiananmen Square demonstrations, lionized by some, villainized by others. I am not this Dan Wang. However, if you are interested in research on protests, why not check out some of mine?)
