I am Professor of Economics at Illinois State University. I joined the Department in 1996 after almost 12 years of work at Bell Atlantic (now called Verizon). I was tenured and promoted to Associate Professor in 2002 and promoted to Full Professor in 2010. I am also Executive Director of the Institute for Regulatory Policy Studies (IRPS).
