Research Interests

My research studies how technology, governance, and market structure affect strategic interactions between firms, affect incentives to innovate, and shape market outcomes. Most of my research settings are industries characterized by two-sided markets, including cable TV, credit cards, Internet, newspapers, telecommunications, and other technology-focused industries. My current research focuses on the effect of AI, robots, and other types of automation on firm strategy, productivity, and labor market outcomes.
