I am an Associate Professor of Economics at Texas A&M University, and Director of the Justice Tech Lab. I’m also a Research Fellow at IZA, and a Research Affiliate at the Institute for Research on Poverty, the University of Chicago Crime Lab, and the Wilson Sheehan Lab for Economic Opportunities.
I study crime and discrimination, with particular emphases on prisoner reentry and the effects of technology on public safety. I organize the Texas Economics of Crime Workshop (TxECW), and I host Probable Causation, a podcast about law, economics, and crime.
