I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Economics at the University of Maryland with research interests that lie at the intersection of industrial organization, finance, institutional design and contract theory. My current research projects studying editorial decision-making at journals and the industry structure of public firms draw heavily on empirical methods from econometrics, computational and network economics, natural language processing and sentiment analysis to develop new metrics for addressing the role of the organization of firms and ideas in the economic value of innovation capital.
In addition to my work at the University of Maryland, I have designed a variety of economic models and analyses for the Departments of Defense, Treasury, State, Homeland Security, NSF, and White House including optimal contracts for military service members and advising on the incentive effects of mergers and acquisitions of contractors. My work designing methods to map out technology landscapes of startups and their investors at Quid has been featured in BusinessWeek, the Harvard Business Review, and The Telegraph.
Research Areas: Computational & Network Economics, Industrial Organization, Finance, Institutions
