Interests: Economic and Urban Geography, Impacts of Technology

Current Research: I write and teach on economic geography and also teach urban geography. My research is mainly on technology: where it comes from and how it impacts people and places differently. These impacts are the realm of regional economic development, in which two important processes are entrepreneurship and telecommunications (including Internet) technologies.
