DESCRIPTION:RED Talks bring industry technology leaders to campus to share their exciting work and offer an insider perspective.  \nSarada discusses the economic impact of technology and innovation on people around the world. \n\n**The most current versions of my CV\, research and teaching can be accessed through my personal website: \nI am an Assistant Professor in Management and Economics at the University of Wisconsin\, Madison. My research is focused on the economics of entrepreneurship and innovation. \nMy work in entrepreneurship looks at who becomes an entrepreneur\, the financial incentives they face in doing so\, and the factors that determine entrepreneurial success. From a public policy perspective\, I study how entrepreneurship has influenced economic mobility in the US\, and how tax policy can be designed to incentivize innovation and risk-taking in entrepreneurship (versus to motivate income shifting between the personal and corporate bases). \nMy work in innovation focuses on understanding the demographics of inventors over the past 150 years\, and it’s implications for the direction of invention. From a firm perspective\, I study how hiring practices reflect technology adoption. Combining these individual and firm level factors\, I study how creative\, inventive and entrepreneurial activity relate to each other across US geographies\, and how these correspond to economic development. \nMy labor market experience includes work in litigation consulting\, and teaching in management\, finance and economics departments – at the undergraduate\, MA/MS and MBA levels. The courses I have taught include Entrepreneurial Finance\, Entrepreneurial Growth Strategies\, Corporate Finance and Managerial Economics. I received my undergraduate degree in economics and statistics from the University of Wisconsin\, Madison and my PhD in economics from the University of California\, San Diego.
