I am an Assistant Professor in the Management Division at Columbia Business School. My research explores how technology startups from around the world scale and why there are international differences in scaling. It draws inspiration from my prior policy work as a senior consultant and staff economist at the World Bank and White House and startup work as a co-founder, adviser, and board member. I created the Scaling Strategically Toolkit to help global entrepreneurs apply this research and contribute to future scholarship.
I earned my BA at Yale University, MPhil at the University of Cambridge, and PhD at Harvard Business School. I was born in Kyiv and grew up outside of Philadelphia.
