Welcome. My main research area is industrial development -- firms, innovation, productivity, trade, industrial policy, labor markets in developing countries. A number of my papers have been concerned with the process of quality upgrading -- how firms raise quality when they sell to richer countries, and the consequences for labor and other input markets. Recently I've been working on technology adoption and productivity estimation, among other topics. Links to my academic papers and other writings are below. Feedback welcome.
