I am an Assistant Professor and the Undergraduate Program Director in the Economics Department at Wilfrid Laurier University. I am also actively involved in the School of International Policy and Governance at WLU and at the Balsillie School of International Affairs.

My research focuses on institutional development at the international, national or local scales. Recent areas of focus have been the effects of ethnic diversity on government quality and the provision of public goods, and the interaction between legal institutions and social structures. Recent publications have appeared in the Journal of African Economies and the Journal of Law, Economics and Organization.

I currently teach 1st year Microeconomics at Laurier, and in the Human Security stream in the Masters in International Public Policy program at the Balsillie School of International Affairs.
