My research examines effects of government policies on science-based innovation and entrepreneurial venturing, and seeks to inform strategies for improving participation and retention of individuals from groups underrepresented in the scientific workforce. As an economist, public policy analyst, data scientist, and entrepreneur, I believe solutions to our most pressing real-world problems require bringing together knowledge and skills from multiple disciplines. In my own work, I use econometrics, natural language text mining and machine learning, and other transdisciplinary approaches to conduct empirical research. Outside of the classroom, I'm a faculty mentor
for Thought Into Action (TIA)
, Colgate's student entrepreneurship incubator.
