Short Professional Bio:
My research covers a wide range of industrial organization including both theoretical and empirical work. My theoretical work focuses on market performance and pricing strategy, particularly with questions pertaining to price discrimination, product differentiation and switching costs. I also like developing new econometric methods and have developed models to estimate heterogeneous treatment effects and a structural model to estimate demand in auctions. My research also extends into other areas of economics including auctions, telecommunications, agriculture, and energy and environmental economics.
I am currently an assistant professor in the Department of Agricultural Economics and Economics at Montana State University. I received Ph.D. and M.A. degrees in economics from the University of Colorado at Boulder and a B.S. degree in economics from Purdue University. Prior to joining Montana State University, I was an assistant professor in the Department of Economics at Tulane University. My other previous experiences include developing electricity price forecasting models for spot and day-ahead markets as well as work as an engineer in the automotive industry. At Montana State University, I teach industrial organization, microeconomic theory and intermediate microeconomics.
