I am interested in regional economic geography from a complexity perspective. I am particularly interested in inter-regional domestic migration, regional economic structures, and systems of cities as a whole. I am drawn to both network analysis and agent-based modeling of regional economic geography. While I am passionate about modeling, I get as much satisfaction from applied work as theoretical work.

I am currently a the assistant director of the Stephen S. Fuller Institute and Center for Regional Analysis  at George Mason University in the Schar School of Policy and Government.
