Greetings! I am assistant professor of economics in the College of Business Administration at Winthrop University in Rock Hill, South Carolina. I have a Ph.D. in economics from West Virginia University and a B.A. in mathematics and economics from Beloit College.
My research interests fall at the intersection of development, institutional, and international economics. I focus more narrowly on the relationship between culture and institutions, transition economies, and the economics of European integration in an applied setting.
