I am an associate clinical professor at the Economics Department at Arizona State University. My main research interest are Economic Growth, Economic Development and Financial Economics. I am specifically interested in the impact of economic institutions on the growth and development performance of countries and the impact of information and economic institutions on the performance of financial markets. In addition I am also interested in the scholarship of teaching in learning.
Currently I am working on a research project exploring the impact of natural resource revenues on the transparency of countries. This is a joint research project with Hamid Mohtadi and Michael Ross. The project has received financial support from the Economic Research Forum.
