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 mainly about my academic work, but it also has links to software I've written that may be useful for others.

My main field of research is industrial organization, and I dabble in econometrics.

I study technology (transformation, a method of turning some goods and services into another good or service) and how policy affects it. Specifically, I study how to learn production functions and cost functions --- which describe technology --- from data to do policy evaluation. Recently, my applied work has focused on how environment and competition policy in the electricity industry affects the productivity of power plants.

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.
