I’m a 5th year PhD candidate in Information Systems (minor in Economics) at the Robert H. Smith School of Business of the University of Maryland, working under the supervision of Prof. Siva Viswanathan. I extensively use Python, Stata, R and MATLAB along with modern data/text mining tools, deep learning techniques and econometrics to address empirical questions on
- Tackling excessive screening on online sharing platforms such as Airbnb.
- Repercussions to mobile apps when they delay adopting new platform policies that enhance users’ data privacy
- Effects of real-time information interventions on Smart TVs in nudging viewers to progress through the purchase funnel on connected second screens
- Economic impact of institutional forms such as Seed Accelerators.
Research Focus: Information Privacy, Platform Strategy, Sharing Economy, Mechanism Designs, Asymmetric Information
Methodology: Econometrics, Machine Learning (Deep Learning), Textual Analysis, Field Experiments
