Ph.D., George Mason University, 2012
Political Economy of Prohibition
I received my Ph.D. in Economics from George Mason University in 2012, where I wrote my dissertation under Peter J. Boettke. My research interests are primarily on the political economy of prohibition, but I am also interested in Austrian economics, law and economics, public choice theory, history of economic thought, and constitutional political economy.
My first two years out of graduate school, I was senior lecturer in the Department of Economics at The Ohio State University. I taught several courses there including Issues in the Underground Economy; Government and Business; Economics of Crime; Economics of War; Honors Principles of Microeconomics; Intermediate Microeconomics; and Current Economic Issues in the United States.
From 2014 to 1016, I was a visiting assistant professor in the Department of Economics at Kenyon College where I taught new courses such as the Economics of Regulation; Principles of Micro and Macroeconomics; and Constitutional Political Economy. I also taught my first seminars on Black Markets, Economics of Crime, and American Economic History.
Last year, I was a visiting assistant professor in the Department of Economics at Wabash College. In Fall 2018, I will join the Department of Economics at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana.
