I am a PhD candidate in the Management and Organization Department at the University of Maryland's Robert H. Smith School of Business. My broad interest is in better understanding how markets work and how such understanding can shape firm and entrepreneurial strategy. My current research examines how heterogeneous motives drive larger market outcomes, particularly the tension between profit motives and other utility. As part of this research, I spent more than a year as a Fulbright Fellow in China researching lender decisions in online peer-to-peer microfinance. From 2007-2009 I worked at a Chicago-based consulting firm specializing in sales and marketing projects for the pharmaceutical and medical industries.
