Post-doctoral Fellow,
NBER (2016-17)

Assistant Professor,
UC Berkeley-Haas (July 2017-)

I am an applied economist interested in understanding the role of digital information in shaping economic activity. I'm especially interested in understanding how maps and geographic information shape innovation.

In 2016-17, I will be a post-doctoral scholar in digitization at the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER). In July 2017, I will be joining full-time at the University of California, Berkeley as an Assistant Professor in the Haas School of Business.

New: A revised version of my Landsat paper is now available.

I am currently visiting Stanford University, Graduate School of Business., office W242.
