I am an Associate Professor of Operations and Information Management (OPIM) at the School of Business, University of Connecticut. My research studies platforms, crowds, and financial technologies (FinTech). Combining theoretical models and granular data, I seek to provide rigorous evidence that informs the system and market design in these areas. My current research projects focus on platforms, real estate markets, and crypto markets.
My work has been published in leading academic journals, such as Management Science, Information Systems Research, MIS Quarterly, and Production and Operations Management. I have received several best paper nominations and awards in information systems conferences and workshops, and the Gordon B. Davis Young Scholar Award from the INFORMS Information Systems Society.
I am also co-leading the UConn Digital Frontiers Initiative, as the academic director of the Connecticut Information Technology Institute. The initiative aims to facilitate collaborations between industry and academia, focusing on cutting edge technology developments (e.g., generative AI). My role encompasses facilitating the translation of complex research into accessible and actionable insights for both industry professionals and policymakers, while also designing innovative training to upskill the workforce in a rapidly evolving digital world.
Prior to join UConn in 2023, I was a tenured faculty member at the MIS department, Eller College of Management, University of Arizona. I received my PhD in Innovation, Technology and Operations from the Rady School of Management, University of California, San Diego.
