PhD Candidate

Northwestern University


I am a microeconomic theorist currently finishing my PhD at Northwestern University.

In my research, I use advance methods to answer questions of policy and practical relevance. My research is focused on the dynamics of information acquisition and experimentation. More broadly, I’m interested in innovation and the design of laws and organizations.

I will be available for interviews on the 2020–21 job market.

Delayed disclosure.

with Ludvig Sinander

A principal owns a project, and recruits an agent to learn about its viability. The agent’s participation over time is observable and costly. Learning is private, allowing the agent to delay the (verifiable) disclosure of any discoveries. The principal incentivises the agent by promising a (history-dependent and possibly random) share of any revenue generated. What is the optimal contract?
