Research and Analysis

   Using SAS, culled, modified, sorted, and aggregated records within large data extracts to produce
    suitable research-specific working datasets. Each extract contained over 800,000 IRS tax returns. All
    modifications and steps are documented in detail.
   Using SAS and Stata, completed projects requiring vector autoregression (VAR), seemingly unrelated
    regression (SUR), ordinary least squares (OLS), and other types of statistical analysis as part of
    advanced econometric study. Projects included work with limited-dependent-variables and panel data.
   Successfully completed doctoral-level coursework in data analysis, advanced econometrics, fiscal
    policy, public policy, public finance, public choice, advanced price theory, industrial organization,
    property rights, antitrust, and regulation.
   Works in progress: Commercial and Recreational Allocation of Fisheries (Valuation, Competition,
    Taxes, Subsidies); Regulatory Activity over the Business Cycle: a Time Series Analysis of Department
    of Justice Caseloads; Granger Causality between Taxes and Government Spending; Race or
    Economics: Redlining in the Real Estate Market (in conceptual stage).
   Dissertation title: Factors Affecting the Formation of Interest Groups. This paper is an empirical,
    cross-sectional study of political interest group formation in the United States. On a per capita basis,
    this study finds that lower voter participation rates and higher government expenditures, on average, are
    consistent with the formation of more political interest groups. Additionally, this study finds that firms
    seeking to avoid political opposition can increase their odds of avoiding opposition by locating in
    Southern, urban regions with concentrated religious markets.
