Welcome to my website! I am a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Economics at Miami University. In August 2019, I will be joining the Department of Economics and Finance at Murray State University as an Assistant Professor of Economics.

I am an applied microeconomist with research lying in industrial organization, information economics, economic analysis of law and regulation, and labor. I am particularly interested in understanding how details of the design and implementation of mandatory disclosure policies affect their ability to regulate product quality, how compliance with law responds to changes in the presence or tactics of law enforcers, and how the severity of punishments prescribed for offenses affects the behavior of law enforcers.
