I am currently an economics PhD student and graduate lecturer at George Mason University.
My research broadly speaking covers Law & Economics, with emphasis on environmental issues, and Smithian Political Economy. I have also done some work on sports economics and international trade.
I currently run a blog here and my writing has been featured at the Online Library of Economics and Liberty as well as other forums like The Independent Review.

My research is at the intersection of law, economics, politics, and transaction costs. I focus on the institutional arrangements that might prevent Coasian bargaining from arising, as well as the potential use of transaction costs (as opposed to Pigouvian taxes) as a means to address externalities.
