My research focuses on two main areas. One is the economics of networks, where I am particularly interested in how behaviors and information spread through social ties. I seek to better understand how the structure of social networks influences the aggregation of information, the diffusion of innovations, and incentives to share or gather information. A second area is incentives within organizations. Here, my interests lie mostly in incentives for innovation and experimentation.
I am currently an assistant professor of economics at Columbia University. Prior to joining Columbia, I was a post doctoral fellow at Harvard University, with a joint appointment at JPAL at MIT. I received my PhD in information systems from New York University's Stern School of Business in 2015. Prior to begining at Stern, I spent two years as an analyst at Cornerstone Research. I earned my bachelor's degree in mathematics from Princeton University in 2009.
