ABOUT ME

Hello and welcome to my personal website. I am an applied microeconomist working with H. Allen Klaiber at The Ohio State University. My research uses observational data to form causal inferences regarding behavioral responses to vulnerability with the intent of informing welfare improving policies. I am also passionate about teaching students how to think critically as pluralistic and empirical economists.

I currently live in Columbus, Ohio with my wife, Genevieve, and our Alaskan Malamute, Boone. I enjoy traveling, camping, following politics, attending concerts, trout fishing, upland game hunting, playing basketball, and cooking. I read from Walt Whitman's "Song of Myself" once every week and my life's work was most influenced by John Rawls' A Theory of Justice, Immanuel Kant's Metaphysics of Morals, and Laurence Smith's The World in 2050.
