About Me

I am a third-year PhD Candidate in the Stanford Department of Economics. My primary research interests are in innovation, entrepreneurship, and firm dynamics. I've completed courses in Labor and Public Economics, IO, and Corporate Finance.

When I'm not debugging code, you can find me at Stanford Badminton. I also love watching (& playing) tennis, and I try to visit as many US states and National Parks as possible [as long as my back still keeps me going].

You can email me anytime at: mihaic@stanford.edu. You can find my CV here.
