My research examines the intended and unintended consequence of innovation, and how access to the resulting information affects welfare at the interface between business, technology, and social issues; notably in the contexts of healthcare and entrepreneurship. Within this stream I have examined how physicians and entrepreneurs react to the emergence of new technologies, and how they update behaviors as a result. My current research topics include: racial and gender inequality, the gig-economy, and the consequence of technology to broader public health.
