I am an Assistant Professor in the Finance Department at the University of Utah. I received my PhD in Economics from the University of Michigan in 2013, and I received my Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Michigan where I pursued a double major in Economics and Mathematics. I spent six years working as a Financial Economist in the Department of the Treasury's Office of Tax Analysis. As an applied microeconomist, my main research interests are in the fields of industrial organization, health economics, regulatory economics, and public finance. My research agenda focuses on developing a greater understanding of the competitive interaction between nontraditional organizational firm structures and the associated antitrust implications. In addition, I work on public policy issues of corporate tax reform.
