In the fall of 2014 I will be teaching public economics and sports economics, and in the spring of 2015 I will be teaching intermediate micro, urban economics, and senior session.

I teach urban economics and public economics as "s" courses, and when I teach sports economics I typically offer it as an "s" course. As a result, I want to provide you with as much help as I can as you strive to improve your writing. I've created a link to a handout on writing papers in economics, and I've also provided links to documents that you'll need for assignments that are subject to my "iterative writing" process. (Papers for Economics 101 are not subject to the "iterative writing" process.)

My current research projects focus on urban economic history (New York City in the 1800s) and sports economics (team chemistry and team performance, the Arena Football League, and steroids use in MLB). Please check my CV for a full list of my professional activity.
