Robert's interests concern how nonproft organizations provide opportunities to reduce inequalities with a special interest in educational stratification and inequality. He studies how organizational interaction between nonprofits and schools might improve the quality of life both for those individuals who directly participate and those who do not. Currently his research is interested in how nonprofit organizations might influence parental engagement with schools.
