Short Bio:

I am a Professor of Economics at the University of California, Santa Cruz, Visiting Scholar at Stanford University, and a Research Associate in the NBER. My research interests include entrepreneurship, education, information technology, inequality, labor economics, and immigration. Publications from my research have appeared in journals such as the American Economic Review, Economic Journal, AEJ: Applied, AEJ: Policy, ReSTAT, JOLE, JAMA: Surgery, and Management Science. I wrote a book on entrepreneurship and economic opportunity published by MIT Press. I received a Ph.D. and M.A. from Northwestern University and B.A. with honors from Stanford University. I have held visiting positions at Yale University, UC Berkeley, and Australian National University. I have received funding for my research from the National Science Foundation as well as numerous government agencies and foundations, and have testified to the U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives, U.S. Department of Treasury, and the California State Assembly regarding the findings from my research. I am routinely interviewed by the media (e.g. NY Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, PBS) to comment on economic and policy issues.
