I am currently the Manuel H. Johnson Professor of Economics in the Sorrell College of Business at Troy University.  I received my Ph.D. from West Virginia University in 2012.  Prior to joining the faculty at Troy University I was an Assistant Professor of Economics at Mercer University.  My main areas of research include public economics and political economy.  My academic work has appeared in such scholarly outlets as The Journal of Comparative Economics, The Journal of Macroeconomics, Public Choice, Economics of Governance, Business & Politics, and The Journal of Institutional Economics among others.  Through this webpage my curriculum vitae, contact information, and much of my academic work have been made available for download.
