My current research is concerned with R&D and Innovation in the United States. This research uses establishment microdata from the Census Bureau linked to other establishment data in order to ascertain mechanisms through which alternative innovation policies could have an impact on U.S. innovative activities and innovation. This involves being able to establish causal links between traditionally considered drivers of innovation and the innovation outcome. Multivariate Statistics play a very important methodological role in this research.
