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.
