What research questions currently preoccupy you?

How do changes in the rules for markets and institutions change individual decision-making? What are the unintended and unplanned responses to changes in these rules? Additionally, what lessons can we draw from the history of economic and political thought to enrich our ideas about decisions in the present?

What personal factors contributed to your research?

What has been most challenging in your research?

Conference deadlines! However, submitting research to a conference is an effective jump start to any project.

How has your position in SJSU contributed to your research?

The dual values of research and teaching at SJSU have provided a rich environment for the development of new ideas. Teaching students how to do research reinforces best practices, as well as staying engaged with new methods. The time afforded to research is also generous and allows me to pursue high-value projects.

A hidden (research) talent:

Useful data is everywhere, and I’m good at finding new datasets to address interesting problems!

One book that changed your life (or research) & why:

The Not So Wild, Wild West: Property Rights on the Frontier (Anderson and Hill). It was on my undergraduate U.S. economic history syllabus, and it made me think about the assumptions we carry with us, the discovery process of research, and the importance of careful research and analysis.

A website/journal/newspaper (in your field?) you follow without fail:

The Economist is a standby, but I enjoy reading history and philosophy just as much.

Advice you’d give to newer faculty or students:

Find the intersection between your research passions and marketable skills. It doesn’t have to be one or the other, but if you research what you care about, you’ll create your own niche.
