Economist, Federal Trade Commission

My research concerns industrial organization, with a focus in production technology, digital platforms, health care, and consumer protection. Since finishing my PhD at the University of Chicago, I have published in several journals, including Econometrica, Marketing Science, the RAND Journal of Economics, and the Review of Economics and Statistics, and received a patent for my work on econometrics. My research is available here.

In addition, I have extensive experience in applying industrial organization methods to real world problems first as a founding member of the Economics Team at Amazon.com, and now at America's premier antitrust and consumer protection regulator. At the FTC, I was awarded the Francis Walker (Economist of the Year) Award in 2019 and the Outstanding Scholarship Award in 2020.

From 2021 to 2022, I will be the Victor H. Kramer Foundation Fellow at Harvard Law School.
