am a Professor, W. Glenn Campbell Fellow, and Faculty Scholar in the Economics Department at The University of Western Ontario.

I am also an Associate Editor of JBES and QE.

My research interests are in the area of Applied  Econometrics. In practice this means that I like to work on any applied topic that catches my attention (look, a butterfly!). 

I have tried to contribute to the literature on dynamic policy evaluation, education, crime, discrimination and productivity.
