As you can see, I have extremely varied interests, both in research and generally in life. I am a former NCAA Scholar Athlete Award winner (for football, but I also rowed crew in College and played serious rugby later on). My research spans a broad range of topics ranging from work that almost belongs in operations research (modeling firm location decisions) to creating simulation models of cities, to mortgage market topics (both theoretical and empirical work). I also work on migration and interregional labor markets. One of the reasons that I work with so many graduate students is that I can supervise research in lots of areas, including the economics of crime and environmental economics. To see what I do, go to the IDEAS or RePEc or Web of Science websites. Over the last two years, I have stumbled on some really good research topics and anticipate that my rate of publication will accelerate over the next 3 years (there is a lag of 3-4 years between getting a good research idea and actually having work appear in journals).
