Professor Cornwell's research focuses on social networks comprised of relationships among individuals and organizations. His work explores the implications of interpersonal and associational networks for individual outcomes, the production of social capital, and the reproduction of social stratification. Cornwell has documented the importance of individuals' integration in social networks for their health, social influence, and employment outcomes - as well as for the visibility and success of larger organizations (especially unions) in the community, and for the availability of credit in early American religious sects.
