Deputy Director for Consumer Protection, Federal Trade Commission

My research, available here, 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, the Review of Economic Studies, Marketing Science, the RAND Journal of Economics, and the Review of Economics and Statistics, and received a patent for my work on econometrics. From 2021 to 2022, I was the Victor H. Kramer Foundation Fellow at Harvard Law School.

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. 

I am now the Deputy Director overseeing the FTC's consumer protection mission within the Bureau of Economics.
