About Me

I am an associate professor in the department of economics at the University of Colorado, Boulder, and a research associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research.

My research focuses on regional development in the United States. I am also interested in the effects of regulation and industrial policy. My curriculum vitae is available here.

I am visiting the Smith Institute for Political Economy and Philosophy at Chapman University during 2023-24.

Work in Progress


I am currently teaching US economic history (Econ 373 at Chapman). The course covers the Colonial period to the present. The syllabus is available here.
