Welcome to my digital home. I am an Associate Professor in the School of Economics at Georgia Institute of Technology. I received my PhD and MA in economics from Rutgers University, and my BSc in economics from Texas Christian University. I spent four years at Louisiana State University prior to coming to Georgia Tech in 2007. My research in international trade is focused on the issue of duration of trade and the effects of credit constraints, trade and environmental agreements, and antidumping. My research in behavioral economics focuses on understanding decision making in the presence of many options. I am director of the Forum for Research in Empirical International Trade and the executive secretary of the International Economics and Finance Society. I am also an associate editor of the Southern Economic Journal.
