Research Summary

My research interests lie in the juxtaposition of the current stagnation in many of the world’s underdeveloped economies, along with their faltering development options, and the international institutional arrangements that affect those options. My overarching approach is to use a variety of quantitative and qualitative methods to evaluate those impacts with an eye toward reassessing policy prescriptions intended to promote economic development.
