Welcome to my homepage. I am currently an Assistant Professor of Economics in the Barney Barnett School of Business and Free Enterprise at Florida Southern College as well as an associate of the newly founded Center for Free Enterprise. My research interests are experimental economics, behavioral economics and political economy. I study principal-agent accountability, political institutions and trust. Other areas of interest include expressive behavior, the economic and moral drivers of group formation and mutual exchange of aid, and the conflict between formal and informal institutions in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro.
I currently teach principles of microeconomics, microeconomic theory, international economics, and Humanomics. What is Humanomics, you ask? It is the inquiry into the compatibility of economics and moral philosophy.
