Ideas:
“  I conduct research on identifying, understanding, and managing information asymmetry and its consequences. Most of my work focuses on information asymmetry between the firm and its constituents (investors, suppliers, employees, regulators, competitors). One area of my research examines understanding and analyzing false information (fake news, disinformation, misinformation) in our digital environment. For instance, finding and classifying web domains that generate false information. The methods and tools employed by false information actors in political contexts are now being deployed in commercial contexts. My objective for this research is to help government and commercial organizations identify and counter those efforts.  ”
