I am an Associate Professor of Organizational Behavior at the Yale School of Management, and a Faculty Affiliate of the Program on Entrepreneurship and the Computation and Society Initiative. I also co-organize the Innovation & Entrepreneurship Seminar.

My research examines evaluation processes in professional contexts to better understand questions related to bias/inequality, entrepreneurship, labor markets, and strategy, with frequent overlap across these areas. In one stream of my work, I identify the factors that contribute to bias and inequality in evaluations, with a focus on how the way evaluation processes are structured affects observed outcomes. In another stream of my work, I use evaluations to understand the market and organizational factors that affect career-related outcomes, commonly in the context of entrepreneurship. The data for my research usually comes from collaborations with technology-focused startups and other archival sources, and I also implement field experiments.

This research has been published in Administrative Science Quarterly, Management Science, 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 teach the MBA and EMBA core course on Entrepreneurship and Innovation, Innovator, and I was recognized as one of the Best 40 Under 40 Professors by Poets & Quants in 2020.

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.
