I study innovation economics, entrepreneurial finance, and risk management. I'm interested in the energy sector, which features severe market failures, capital intensity, and government intervention. I also enjoy working on and traveling to China. I speak Mandarin (not fluently, but I can get along). Finally, I'm excited about fintech startups: new ventures applying information technology - especially blockchain, AI, and big data - to financial services.


I received my BA in Economics and East Asian Studies from Yale University, and my PhD in PEG Economics from Harvard University.


I'm lucky to be married to Rob Berschinski. We enjoy hiking, traveling, animals, dinner parties, and shuttling between East Coast cities.
