I am an Assistant Professor of Economics at the University of Arizona. I will join Middlebury College as an Assistant Professor of Economics in Summer 2019.
My main research interests are economic history, and law and economics. I study the role legal institutions played in the historical development of Middle Eastern economies.
Currently, I work on legal forms of firm organization, corporate governance, firm dynamics, and the effect of legal reforms in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries in Ottoman Turkey and Egypt.
