About Me

CV (updated December 2020)

I am an academic economist working at the nexus of strategy, economics, and public policy. My research studies the drivers and consequences of innovation, with a three-part program examining the effects of automation on workers, firms, and labor markets; the historical origins of U.S. leadership in science and technology since the second World War; and the use of incentives and other tools in managing creative workers within organizations. My work frequently uses historical examples of industries undergoing significant technological change as a lens into the present and future.


From 2016 to 2020, I was an Assistant Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School. Beginning in the 2020-2021 academic year, I will be joining Duke's Fuqua School of Business.

My email address can be found in my CV. Papers are on my research page.
