I am currently an Assistant Professor of Economics at Clemson University. Previously I have served as Assistant Professor in the Department of Economics at Towson University and the Center for Advanced Modeling at Johns Hopkins University. My research agenda continues to coalesce into an economic investigation of social, legal, and political institutions. I am methodologically promiscuous, using applied microeconomic (empirical) studies, laboratory experiments, and agent-based computational models to pursue interests in law enforcement, hierarchy, power, religion, corruption, political economy, and physician behavior. Beyond my research life, I geek out over movies, tv, art, the Washington Capitals, and Tottenham Hotspur FC. I was once a competent hockey goalie with a solid glove hand and a surprising capacity to get my pads to the low corners, but now I wander the wasteland in search of a sport that can accommodate my ever deteriorating athleticism, or at least involves the occasional trip to the bar afterwards.
