About Me

I study racial equity and inequity in entrepreneurship, organizations, technology, and public policy. Currently, I am an Assistant Professor of Economics at St. John’s University’s Tobin College of Business. Prior to accepting this role I held a position in the management and organizations department at NYU Stern as a Provost’s Postdoctoral Fellow.

My dissertation research investigates whether disparities in entrepreneurship entry or exit between Blacks and Whites in the US vary over the business cycle. I examine the extent to which cyclical changes in labor and housing markets explain variation in the disparities.

I was recently awarded a Kauffman Foundation Knowledge Challenge Grant to study racial equity in technology entrepreneurship and to create programming that advances research on this topic among other scholars of color.

My Ph.D. is from the Milano School of Policy, Management, and Environment at The New School.
