For the 2016-2017 academic year, I am on research leave as a Fellow of the University of Paris Law School (Center for Law & Economics) and a Senior Fellow of the Eleutheria Institute. I am writing a book on cronyism and regulatory capture. Generally, my research interests are constitutional political economy, institutional economics, Austrian economics, and history of economic thought.
I hold a BSFS cum laude in International Affairs from the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University (1994) and a Ph.D. in Economics from George Mason University (2007). I have been associate professor of economics at Flagler College, visiting assistant professor at Florida Gulf Coast University, and Wallace and Marion Reemelin Chair in Free-Market Economics at Hillsdale College.
