I am an Assistant Professor at the School of Economic, Political and Policy Sciences at the University of Texas at Dallas. Prior to joining UT Dallas in 2013, I completed my PhD in Public Administration and Policy at Arizona State University. My research in applied state and local government finance seeks to inform governments of ways to manage fiscal risk and promote long-term fiscal health which involves a responsible management of operating budgets, long-term debt, and employee retirement obligations. More broadly, I study effects of fiscal institutions and form of government on outcomes of government financial performance. In addition to government finance, I am interested in research on migration in post-Soviet economies. At UT Dallas, I teach courses in public affairs economics, research methods, financial management for non-profit organizations, public administration theory, and fiscal and budgetary policy.
