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.


I (co-)organize two online seminars — one on the economics of crime, and the other on the economics of discrimination and disparities. I’m also organizing flash webinars on policing research. Click here for more information.
