A professor of strategy + applied economist.

I am an applied economist and with interests in business strategy, productivity, and economic policy in particular industries and in the overall economy. Specifically, I study the social and economic implications of corporate innovation and intellectual property protection. More recently, I’ve explored behavioral economics, financial markets, and business ethics.

On a personal level, I am a native of California and remain close to my Greek roots through my fluency in the language and visits to family in Peloponnese, Greece. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and twin daughters, going to concerts, solving puzzles, and reading philosophy. My favorite work of philosophy is Meno, one of the dialogues of Plato.
