|Between college and graduate school, I spent a few years in the private sector as a pricing analyst for U.S. Airways and a financial accountant for Wachovia Bank. Prior to joining the WFU economics department in 2005, I taught economics at UNC-Chapel Hill and Guilford College. Here at Wake Forest, I teach Introduction to Economics, Micro I, and American Economic Development.
My training and research interests are geared toward Industrial Organization and economic history with a specific emphasis on the airline industry.
