Welcome to my personal web page. I am a Principal Economist at the
Center for Economic Studies (CES).
My work focuses on research in economics, and data analysis and development. My research areas include firm and industry dynamics, firm financing, industrial and labor relations, entrepreneurship, and technology adoption.
I am one of the developers of the Business Formation Statistics and the team lead at CES on data collection and research on technology use by firms (Tech Stats). I am also part of the team that developed and analyzed the Small Business Pulse Survey.
