Current Courses

Econ 404 "Industrial Organization and Data Science." University of Washington, Spring 2016

I am co-founder of the Microsoft Research Data Science Summer School, an intensive 8 week outreach program that teaches core statistical and computational methods over 4 weeks. Students then work intensively over the next 4 weeks to produce publishable projects. 2016 will be our third year running the program.

Past Courses

Internally at Microsoft I have taught workshops on pricing theory and price discrimination, helping to establish a data-driven culture that uses business statistics and experimental methods to inform decision making. Slides for some of these workshops are available upon request.

Econ 612 "Graduate Methods in Experimental Economics." University of Tennessee, Fall 2012
