Joshua R. Bruce

Hi there!

Thanks for checking out my website. I’m a PhD candidate in sociology at Duke University. My research primarily focuses on work, occupations, and careers in knowledge-intensive sectors of the modern economy (e.g., government scientists, university academics). I am especially interested in the returns to human and social capital for individuals and the organizations they interact with. Additional to my interests in organizations, occupations, and work, I have ongoing projects that employ computational and causal inference methods to study politics and news media.
