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 quantitative methods, complemented with qualitative insights, and natural field experiments to examine (1) how informal knowledge sharing affects the knowledge production process, (2) the implications of social networks on performance and career outcomes, and (3) the extent that access to managerial skills training in technical fields promotes workforce diversity.
I have a PhD in Management Sciences from Northwestern University. Before graduate school, I worked in sales and trading, equity research, and in retail services and operations. I have a BSE in Operations Research and Financial Engineering from Princeton University, and an executive MBA from Columbia Business School.
