Christopher Tonetti is a macroeconomist with research in the areas of growth and household finance. His research focuses on how firms' investments in innovation and technology adoption contribute to aggregate growth. Recently, he has studied the economics of consumer-generated data with an emphasis on property rights, incorporating concerns over privacy, and the use of data in innovation. He has also studied how changes in trade policy can alter the competitive environment and affect growth rates by altering the technology adoption patterns of firms.
