I am an Assistant Professor of Economics at Villanova University. I have research interests in the area of political economy, state and local public finance, regulation, and public-sector labor markets. I graduated from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor with a Ph.D. in Business Economics in 2014. My dissertation committee was comprised of Profs. Joel Slemrod (Chair), James Hines, Dana Muir, and Jagadeesh Sivadasan.
