I am a PhD candidate in Strategy & Entrepreneurship at the London Business School. My advisor is Gary Dushnitsky, and I am on the 2022-2023 academic job market. My dissertation was recognized as a finalist for the 2022 Organization Science/INFORMS Dissertation Proposal Competition and Strategic Research Foundation (SRF) Dissertation Grant Program.


My research interests are in innovation and entrepreneurship with a particular focus on biopharmaceutical and high-tech industry.

Prior to joining the doctoral program, I worked as a semiconductor engineer at Samsung Electronics and led an Internet startup in 2010. These roles afforded me a diverse set of experiences, from designing products to managing a venture, which informs my research.


I hold a BS in Computer Engineering from the University of Illinois and Master's degrees from the University of Southern California in Computer Engineering and Entrepreneurship & Innovation.
