Welcome to my site! I'm an Assistant Professor in the Operations, Information, and Decisions (OID) department at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. I'm one of the affiliated faculty members at Wharton AI for Business. Broadly, my research is centered on the economic impact of digital technologies.


My work shows that new digital technologies and intangible assets are an increasingly important component of economic activity. Investment in data assets, machine learning and artificial intelligence, and technological human capital are critical margins for firm competition and social change in this environment. In my research, I measure and explain how some of these trends are evolving. Visit my research tab for papers and associated datasets (when I can make them publicly available).


Here's a link to my CV. Here's my Google Scholar page.


I'm also a Digital Fellow at both the MIT Initiative on the Digital Economy and the Stanford HAI Digital Economy Lab.


Many thanks to the talented Amy Forman for building this site!

A perfect day at Wrigley!
