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 interests are in the area of state and local government finance with a focus on fiscal institutions, revenue structures, and fiscal health. My unique expertise is in research on pension obligation funding by city governments. Besides pursuing research in government finance, I have a nascent interest in determinants and outcomes of migration and in the development of democratic institutions of governance in post-Soviet economies. At UT Dallas, I teach undergraduate and graduate courses in public affairs economics, research methods, financial management for non-profit organizations, public administration theory, and fiscal and budgetary policy.
