Welcome to my webpage. I am an Assistant Professor of Economics at California State University San Bernardino. My research interests are in labor economics and economic history.

January 22, 2019 update:

Note: I presented “Political Economy of Internal Migration in the 19th Century U.S.” at URPE’s 50th Anniversary conference in September. I spent most of the rest of the Fall Quarter developing that into a critical review of the literature and outlining several potential hypotheses based on this critique – thus, the paper is not really “submittable” but contains several potential ideas future projects. I also revised and resubmitted two papers. Finally, I prepared my file/application for tenure and promotion to Associate Professor.

Over the next 2-3 months, I am preparing my internal migration and house prices paper for submission and preparing a few smaller local economic data projects. I have a heavy teaching load this quarter (3 courses that are 4-credit hours each, i.e., about 10 hours of instruction per week) which will limit my research activity.

Updates done to the website:

  • Changed publication status of FHA loan limit reductions paper
  • Updated title and information of internal migration and house prices paper
  • Added “Political Economy of Internal Migration in the 19th Century U.S.”
  • Added a new mention of our homeownership study, which won a National Association for Home Builders award in August

July 19, 2018 update:

  • New edited version of property rights and economic growth paper and FHA loan limit reductions paper
  • Information about a grant I received to add data-driven inquiry about the local economy into Principles of Macroeconomics
