About me


I am a professor of economics at Baylor University. I study a number of topics at the intersection of crime and risky behavior. I am particularly interested in the effects of technology and policy on sex work.  I love my family, friends, and students, HBO TV, causal inference and Kanye West.  I wrote this “Getting into an Economics PhD” for my students in Uruguay. Check out my free online textbook,  “Causal Inference: the Mixtape" (with accompanying Spotify playlist). Here’s what I’m listening to right now. My google citations webpage is here
