Welcome!

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

My research focuses on the dynamics of information acquisition and experimentation. The questions I find most exciting are related to research and development, innovation, law, 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?
