About Me

I am currently a senior research fellow at the Clayton Christensen Institute for Disruptive Innovation, where I lead our Global Prosperity research. I work alongside Harvard Business School Professor Clay Christensen in figuring out the best ways to help entrepreneurs, policy makers and development practitioners spur economic prosperity in their regions. I graduated from Vanderbilt University with a degree in computer engineering and got my MBA from Harvard Business School.



 My most recent book, published alongside Professor Clayton Christensen and Karen Dillon is titled The Prosperity Paradox: How innovation can lift nations out of poverty



My research on innovation and global prosperity can be accessed through a variety of platforms, including a TEDx Talk I gave in Gaborone in 2017. 



My work has been published by the Harvard Business Review, Guardian, Quartz, the World Bank, and I regularly speak on the topic of innovation and economic development.
