Political Economy of Prohibition

I received my Ph.D. in economics from George Mason University in 2012 where I wrote my dissertation under Peter J. Boettke. My research interests are primarily on the political economy of prohibition but I am also interested in Austrian economics, law and economics, public choice theory, history of economic thought, and constitutional political economy.

My first two years out of graduate school I was senior lecturer in the department of economics at The Ohio State University. I taught several courses there including Issues in the Undeground Economy, Government and Business, Economics of Crime, Economics of War, Honors Principles of Microeconomics, Intermediate Microeconomics, and Current Economic Issues in the United States.

From 2014 to 1016 I was a visiting asssistant professor in the department of economics at Kenyon College where I taught new courses such as the economics of regulation, principles of micro and macroeconomics, and constitutional political economy. I also taught my first seminars on black markets, economics of crime, and American Economic History.

Last year I was a visiting assistant professor in the department of economics at Wabash College. Starting this Fall I will be joining the Department of Economics at Indiana University in Bloomington, IN.
