Research & Consulting

My primary research interest is on the economic and social impacts of legalized gambling (particularly casino gambling), which I have been studying since 1996. I have published two books, and more than 50 articles and book chapters on these issues. Click on the links below for more information on my research.

Most of my classes are in microeconomics. I teach the principles and intermediate microeconomics courses, as well as a special topics class on the socioeconomics of gambling. I have also taught international trade, the senior research seminar, intermediate macroeconomics, and public finance.
