Curriculum Vitae

Welcome to my website! I am an economist. I currently work for Afiniti, and I formerly worked for Amazon. I got my PhD in economics from the University of Wisconsin - Madison. This site is about my academic work.

My main fields of research are industrial organization, productivity, econometrics, and environmental economics. Recently, I have been working on some applied macroeconomics work as well, related to my more micro work on productivity choice.

I study the distribution of technology across firms and industries, how it has changed over time, and how policies affect it. Technology in economics means transformation — a method of turning some goods and services into another good or service. Some methods are better than others and we say these methods have greater productivity. I study the distribution of productivity and how to recover it from data.

I am a fan of the San Diego Padres and their annual quest to finish better than last place in the NL West. In 2018, they... did not succeed.
