Welcome to my web page. I am an economist especially interested in macroeconomics, international economics and economic history. I received my MA (2001) and PhD (2006) from the University of Virginia. Prior to coming to Wesleyan, I taught for several years at Miami University in Oxford Ohio.
I was born in Colorado and grew up in Michigan. After graduating from Carleton College in Northfield Minnesota, I spent a couple of years in New York writing about Latin American corporate loans for a trade publication. I am a fan of the Detroit Tigers baseball team.
For the 2012-13 academic year, I am at the University of Colorado, Boulder as a visiting scholar.
