I teach in the Department
of Economics and Finance at the University of Wyoming.
At the undergraduate level, I teach microeconomics, mathematical
economics, industrial organization, and econometrics. At the graduate level I
teach industrial organization and a course on experimental methods.
My research interests lie in the area of industrial organization. Many of
my papers analyze data from experimental markets. Representative publications

From 2010-2016 I served as Associate Dean for Faculty in
the College of Business. In August 2016 I became Director of Assessment and
Faculty Development in the college.
My outside interests are in fly fishing
and whitewater rafting. A good trip combines both. I have rowed the Colorado
River down the Grand Canyon, the Middle Fork of the Salmon, and the Selway River. I catch and release my fish. The rainbow
trout shown here was returned to the water after the photo.
