Welcome! I am a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard Business School and the Laboratory for Innovation Science at Harvard (LISH). My research focuses on organizations, and lies at the intersection of knowledge production, social networks, diversity and careers.
I use natural field experiments paired with archival data and qualitative insights to examine how (1) knowledge sharing and social networks affect innovation and (2) the structural constraints that lead to race and gender bias and how to develop strategies that mitigate these biases.
I have a PhD in Management Sciences from Northwestern University. Before graduate school, I worked in sales and trading, equity research, and retail demand forecasting. I have a BSE in Operations Research and Financial Engineering from Princeton University, and an executive MBA from Columbia Business School.
