Research

In my research, I am interested in topics in labor economics, the economics of education, and the economics of  innovation. To answer questions in these areas, I use microeconometric methods and natural experiments.

My research on labor and education economics has been accepted at Journal of Labor Economics and at Journal of Economic Growth. My research on the economics of innovation has been accepted at American Economic Journal: Economic Policy, at Journal of Industrial Economics, and at Research Policy.

In my current work, I study the impact of digital technologies on the productivity of inventors, the importance of peer mentoring for online teaching, and the impact of student personality on college major choice, among other topics.
