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 are:

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.
