My research focuses on how firms respond to competition. That research is now leading me into some interesting questions about policies toward competition and entrepreneurship.
I spent the 2016-2017 academic year on leave at the White House Council of Economic Advisers as Senior Economist for Technology and Competition.
I did my undergraduate degree at Stanford University with my Honors thesis advised by Ken Arrow. My doctorate is from Berkeley‘s Haas School of Business. Prior to my graduate study, I worked at Google for which I have received patents on a range of technologies from detecting click fraud to music classification.
Currently, I teach the core course “Fundamentals of Strategy” at Fuqua. I’ve also taught courses in undergraduate and doctoral programs on strategy and statistical/empirical methods as well as executive capsule lessons at firms including Google.
I am also the administrator of the Manuel Bennett Art Trust and am a board member of a non-profit “incubator” for musicians, Zoo Labs, that is trying to help musicians develop new business models for funding their art.
