In my research, I use evaluation processes in market and organizational settings to better understand questions related to bias, careers, entrepreneurship, and strategy. In recent work, I focus on how failure in high-tech startups affects founders and their employees' subsequent careers. In other work, I aim to understand the mechanisms responsible for gender and racial bias in evaluations and the economic effects of this bias in competitive markets. The data for this work usually comes from my collaborations with technology-focused startups, and I use a diverse set of empirical methods. This research has been published in Administrative Science Quarterly and Organization Science, and it has been covered by various media outlets; I have also written pieces for the Harvard Business Review and the London School of Economics Business Review based on this work.

I earned my PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Sloan School of Management in 2017, and my BA and BS from Providence College in 2007. Prior to entering academia, I spent time working in investment banking (e.g., M&A and capital raises) and strategic corporate finance.
