In addition to academic research aimed at peer reviewed journals, I do consulting work and invited papers and presentations
for industry, government, research institutes, and publishers. I mostly work as an independent contractor, but do occasional
projects with several consulting and law firms. For more information, please see the Casinonomics webpage.
