About me

cropped-img_1316-copy.jpgI’m an assistant professor of economics at Dickinson College.

I have a PhD in economics from George Mason University, where I was also a Mercatus Center Graduate Research Fellow.

My main interests are institutional economics, public choice, comparative economic systems, and Austrian economics. My papers and conference presentations currently fall mainly in two larger research projects: (1) The political economy and institutional theory of polycentric governance. (2) The dynamics of capitalist systems.

I’m originally from Bucharest, Romania, where I’ve worked at the Center for Institutional Analysis and Development (CADI) for four years. My last project at CADI was “Let’s Talk about Freedom“.
