Welcome to my website! I am an Assistant Professor of Economics at the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse (UW-L). I am an applied microeconomist, with primary interestes in labor economics, the economics of the family, and experimental economics.
In terms of research, I (along with coauthors) recently received invitations to revise and resubmit from B.E. Journal of Economic Analysis and Policy, Review of Economics of the Household and Contemporary Economic Policy. In addition, I am working on three new projects with various coauthors. The first examines peer effects in the context of retirement. The second estimates whether the marriage earnings premium for men varies across birth cohorts. The last project is focused on a comprehensive analysis of various changes to family law (i.e. no fault and unliteral divorce, child custody, child support enforcement, property division) and their impact on divorce rates.
I enjoy teaching courses in the general area of microeconomics, especially introductory microeconomics, (Eco 110), econometrics (Eco 307), intermediate microeconomics (Eco 308) and labor economics (Eco 330). I plan to offer these courses on a regular basis in the coming years. I hope to offer a course on industrial organization (Eco 303) at some point in the future.
