I joined the Economics Department in the fall of 1995, shortly after completing my Ph.D. at Yale, where I worked with John Geanakoplos, David Weiman and Benjamin Polak. I have a BA (First Honors) from McGill University in Montreal, Canada and an MA from Queen’s University at Kingston, also in Canada. I teach courses in macroeconomics, labor economics and economic theory, and do research in behavioral economics and radical political economy.

I am married to Carolyn Craven, a development economist and award-winning children's book author. We share our old Vermont house with our remarkable twin daughters, Emma Laurel and Catriona Mari, now thirteen, and three cats.
