      RESEARCH

My current research tries to explain why some regions are so low in R&D investment and others so high. What makes regions that are investing as much as others in STEM education not be at the same level of high tech development? A deeper understanding of why firms innovate may shed light on the matter.

I am also working on a new way of approaching the teaching of introductory probability, with a grant from the NSF Professional development award at UCLA in 2012 ; and on how to implement new software developed by others in CCLE.
