Donald P. Jacobs Scholar
My research focuses on the incentives and institutions that drive science and innovation. I use administrative data from fields like structural biology and astronomy to investigate academic competition and scientific careers. I also study the labor market for scientists and inventors, trying to better understand how we identify, train, and promote future innovators. I graduated with a PhD in economics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2020 and earned a BS in economics, mathematics, and political science from Brigham Young University in 2014.
