In addition to Reed, he has taught at the University of Arizona and Queen's College. He is an organizational theorist and an economic sociologist; he has written extensively about the insurance industry, about the management of risk and about its regulation.

In addition, he is collaborating with Matt Kraatz and Adam Goldstein on studies of the conversion of mutual savings and loan associations to for-profit stock corporations from 1970 to 1990, with Tim Bartley on an analysis of financial regulation in the current period, and with Gerald Berk on a 340 industry study of associations, learning, and benchmarking in the US economy from 1900 to 1930.
