    Welcome!  I am an Assistant Professor of Economics at Marshall University.  My primary research interest are in  International Economics (with an emphasis on Empirical International Trade) and Macroeconomics. My secondary research interests include Public Economics and Applied Econometrics.

    Besides my research or teaching responsibilities, I enjoy listening to music, cooking, working out and hanging out with friends and my dog Rooney (collie and shepherd mix).
