How I Might Be Able to Assist

Professional Projects or Initiatives of Interest

Redesign/Upgrade of the NECB eLibrary. In 2015, I collaborated with both NECB and ECA staff to create a new eLibrary. The new eLibrary offers a design that is easier to use and also offers numerous new resources (such as the Journals A-Z search tool) and databases such as JPMorgan Research that contains thousands of company analyst reports.

The Development of Historical Data Visualization, Harvard Business School. In 2014, I gathered data since 1850 on a variety of topics such as commodity exports, mail handled, railroad lines, sea cables, etc. This data was then used to create online maps over time that illustrate the growth of capitalism globally.

Ranking of Most Influential Business Thinkers, Harvard Business School. In 2013, I partnered with Tom Davenport of Babson College in creating a list of the most influential business thinkers. It was featured in The Wall Street Journal.
