About Me

I am an assistant professor of business administration in the Technology and Operations Management unit at Harvard Business School. I am currently teaching the first-year Technology and Operations Management course.

My research interest is at the interface of causal inference, experimental design, and large-scale computing with the overall goal of democratizing statistical methods to help firms innovate and grow. I am particularly interested in understanding the value brought by experimentation and data-driven decisions in achieving a competitive advantage. 

Before joining Harvard Business School, I worked as a data scientist leading the causal inference effort within the Applied Research Group at LinkedIn. I have a Ph.D. and an MA in Statistics from Harvard and an MSci in Mathematics from King’s College London.
