Description

Michael Ewens is an Associate Professor of Finance and Entrepreneurship at Caltech in the Humanities and Social Sciences group. From 2010-2014, he was on the faculty at Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University. Professor Ewens is also a Faculty Research Fellow at the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER). He received his PhD in economics from the University of California, San Diego in 2010. Since 2006,  Professor Ewens has worked as a quantitative advisor for Correlation Ventures, a quantitative-focused venture capital firm based in San Diego, CA.

Professor Ewens studies the financial intermediation, innovation and management of high-growth entrepreneurial firms. In this environment which is characterized by extreme agency and information frictions, he believes that one can revisit fundamental issues in finance and economics. All of his projects attempt to create new large sample data where earlier research had only a few industries or short time periods.
