Receiving my Kauffman Dissertation Fellowship. Foreground, left to right: Bob Strom (Kauffman), Antoinette Schoar (MIT), and Me.

For almost two years this news page wasn't updated. There was simply too much news and too little time to report it. I'd claim that I'll try to do better, but that seems unlikely to actually happen.

The highlights from 2012 and early 2013 were:

  • I received my PhD from Haas at U.C. Berkeley on May 12th 2012. I was awarded the Henry K. Hayase Award at the graduation ceremony for my service to the PhD students. My sister, step-sister, step-mother, and step-step-father attended my graduation (I have a post-Nuclear family).
  • I took a Post-doctoral Fellowship for one year at the Sauder School of Business, UBC, under my long-term mentors Jim Brander and Thomas Hellmann. The Strategy and Business Economics group at Sauder has a fantastic set of people. I taught three sections of COMM493 (Government and Business) in the Fall term, and then did research in the Spring and Summer terms. Time flew by, and many great lunches were had.
  • I was awarded the position as the 2013 Innovation Policy Fellow at the National Bureau of Economic Research under Josh Lerner and Scott Stern. Josh, an accomplished equestrian, suffered an accident before my arrival in September. Scott has been great as a new advisor and has shaped my job market paper considerably.
  • I'm applying for tenure-track positions in Strategy, Business Economics, and Corporate Finance, on the 2013/2014 academic job market. See my Job Market Applications page for more information.
