I am pursuing my Ph.D. in Strategy at the University of Michigan's Stephen M. Ross School of Business. My research focuses on factors that influence the ability of firms to develop and adopt new technologies. In my dissertation work, I examine how integrating human assets facilitates or impedes firm adoption of new technologies. In joint work with Gautam Ahuja, I study how the composition of shareholders affects firm decision-making with respect to R&D.

Prior to joining the doctoral program at Ross, I worked as an associate economist in the Research Group at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. I hold a bachelor of arts degree in economics with a concentration in poverty studies from Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia.

Fun Fact: "Casidhe" is pronounced "Cassidy." It's a Gaelic name meaning both "clever" and "one with curly hair." While the fit of the former is up for debate, my parents proved to be quite prophetic on the latter.
