About Me
I am an economist and Assistant Professor in the Technological Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Strategic Management group at the MIT Sloan School of Management, holding 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. With a particular focus on the energy sector and cleantech innovation, I am 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.
