I am a professor in the Department of Economics at the College of Charleston,
where I've taught since 2007. During my sabbatical in fall 2014 I
was a visiting professor at Harvard Medical School and the Cambridge
Health Alliance, Division
on Addiction. My primary research
interest is on the economic and social impacts of gambling,
particularly casino gambling, which I've been studying for about 20
years. My most recent interest is in "responsible gambling." I
have published two books and more than 50 articles and book chapters on
the socioeconomic impacts of gambling, and have served as an
advisor or consultant for industry groups, state governments, and
for a list of journals that publish gambling research.
