I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan's Ross School of Business in the Strategy area. I study how firms and individuals evaluate one another in the context of labor and cultural goods markets. I use quasi-experimental design and a broad range of theoretical perspectives including information and labor economics, economic sociology, strategy, and organizational theory to explore these areas.
Before joining academia, I worked as a Manager in Ernst & Young's (EY's) Advisory Services. At EY, I audited, advised, and performed data analytics for firms including Wal-Mart, Tyson Foods, and Hewlett Packard (HP). Before that, I was a programmer and database administrator for Telogical Systems, a startup company that specializes in competitive intelligence. These experiences influence both my research and teaching.
