Ezra Zuckerman is an economic sociologist with a focus on social network analysis. He studies how social structures of various kinds emerge and influence behavior and key outcomes for individuals, teams, and organizations. Zuckerman's current research projects include a study of industry peer networks, exclusive groups of noncompeting peer firms from the same industry that gather on a regular basis to learn from one another's experiences and to motivate one another to achieve higher performance.
Prior to joining the MIT Sloan School of Management, Zuckerman taught strategic management and organizational behavior at the Stanford Graduate School of Business.
He earned a PhD in sociology from the University of Chicago.
