Hello, welcome to my website.
I am Senior Fellow, Economic Opportunity at the Charles Koch Institute. My research focuses on cities, urban development, population trends, labor markets, and federal and local urban public policy.
My op-eds and commentary have appeared in national outlets such as USA Today, US News and World Report, Real Clear Policy, and The Hill, as well as regional outlets such as the Detroit Free Press, Las Vegas Sun, Cincinnati Enquirer, and Orange County Register among others. I am also a Forbes contributor.
In addition to my research I have taught undergraduate and graduate courses in economics at Clemson University, Florida State University, and George Mason University.
I earned my master’s and PhD in economics from Clemson University and a BS in economics and a BA in comparative religion from Miami University in my home state of Ohio.
