I am Associate Chairperson (as of 7/1/2021), Professor of Economics, and Faculty Affiliate in History at Williams College and a Research Associate with the Davis Center at Harvard. Mostly an economic historian, my research covers a number of development-related questions in late Imperial Russia. I teach a variety of different courses, from introductory economics, to economic history, to development, to the economics of innovation and sports. I am also Co-PI on two NSF Grants, including the Cliometrics Conference grants for 2022 - 2024.
