Research Interests 

Corporate Finance, Entrepreneurship, Innovation, Venture Capital, and Industrial Organization

My research agenda strives to understand the relationship between financial markets and real economic output in terms of entrepreneurship, innovation, and development. In particular, I’m interested in the changing landscape of alternative finance and the role new paradigms of funding have on entrepreneurial decision making.

Prior to joining UNC, I earned a Ph.D. in Finance (2017) and an MA in Finance (2013) at the University of California, Berkeley. I also hold an B.S. in Mathematics and an B.A. in Economics (2011) from the University of Texas at Austin. CV
