About Me
I am an Assistant Professor in the Technological Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Strategic Management group at the MIT Sloan School of Management and hold the Fred Kayne (1960) Career Development Professorship of Entrepreneurship. I am also an Honorary Research Associate with the University of Oxford and Research Affiliate of CESifo.

My research explores the drivers and consequences of innovation for social progress through an economics lens. I am particularly interested in understanding how policy and management can help steer the direction of innovation towards that which protects environmental systems and enhances quality of life, such as innovation in clean energy technology.
