I recently finished my PhD at the MIT Sloan School of Management and started my appointment as an assistant professor in the Entrepreneurial Management Unit at Harvard Business School.

My research focuses on R&D strategy and the economics of innovation. My dissertation examines project selection decisions, R&D competition, and how firms can benefit by learning from their competitorsí failures. My current work explores how firms adjust their R&D efforts in response to new information and resources. Prior to my doctoral studies,

I worked in economic and litigation consulting at Cornerstone Research in Boston, and received my B.A. in economics and government from Cornell University. At MIT, my work was supported in part by the Kauffman Foundation Fellowship in Entrepreneurship Research, the National Bureau of Economic Researchís Predoctoral Fellowship on the Value of Medical Research, the Sloan Foundation, and the National Science Foundationís Science of Science Policy Program (SciSIP).
