  • Professor of Economics & Business Administration

Economics & Business Administration

I have been a member of the McDaniel faculty since 2000. My primary research areas of interest include business cycles, monetary policy, Bitcoin, and economic development in Eastern Europe. I have published articles in journals including The Journal of Macroeconomics, Eastern Economic Review, and International Advances in Economic Research. In 2004, I was awarded the Order of Omega & Gamma Sigma Alpha Outstanding Professor Award, and I am the recipient of a 2015 ASIANetwork Freeman Foundation grant to conduct research with students in China. I have also been visiting faculty at McDaniel Europe in Budapest and Universite Saint-Louis, Brussels.

Prior to joining the McDaniel faculty, I was a Senior Economist at Moody's Analytics (formerly RFA Dismal Sciences), near Philadelphia, where I covered inflation, foreign exchange markets, the New England regional economy, and the financial services industry.

Away from McDaniel I travel widely, read voraciously, ride my Harley, watch Star Wars excessively, and look for good curry restaurants. I live in Westminster with my wife Diane, daughter Adelaide, and naughty cats Bazooka, Miss Chloe, Daisy, George, Thumper, and Panda Bear.
