Hi, I’m Eli, and this is my website.
I’m a senior research fellow at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University and director of its Technology Policy Program. I have studied and written about a wide range of technology policy issues, including Internet governance, intellectual property, cybersecurity, and cryptocurrency. My PhD is in economics.
Lately, my research agenda has turned to aviation policy. Airspace is a woefully underutilized resource. With the right policies and some imagination we could have mind-blowing progress in aviation, but for the most part we have been content to leave the skies to large passenger jets flying hub-and-spoke routes at a mere 600 mph. My goal is to change that.
