Welcome! I am an economic historian working as Associate Professor of Economics at Weber State University. My fields of interest are Economic History, Political Economy, and Institutional Economics. My research focuses on the interaction of politics and economics. Currently, I am studying political and economic elites in the 20th century and the history of Economic History.
I am currently teaching courses on the Economic History of the United States, Introduction to Economics, and Intermediate Microeconomic Theory. I am always developing a course on the History of Economics (History of Economic Thought). Previously, I have taught courses on "American Economic History" and "Economic History and Modern Development" at the University of Maryland at College Park.
