I am an associate professor in the Department of Agribusiness and Applied Economics at North Dakota State University and am affiliated with the Center for the Study of Public Choice and Private Enterprise. I write for the American Institute for Economic Research where I regularly contribute to the Sound Money Project which is dedicated to the investigation and promotion of sound money and its application in society.
I attended George Mason University, earning Ph.D. in economics in 2017. My current work focuses on the relationship between knowledge, entrepreneurship, and institutions.
