hammer_eric-sI am an Assistant Professor of Economics and Business Analytics at Hamline University. I received my Ph.D. in Economics from George Mason University in 2018 where I was a Ph.D. Fellow at the Mercatus Center and an Adam Smith Ph.D. Fellow.

I have been nominated for the George Mason University Teaching Excellence Award, the Career Connection Faculty Award, and was a 2016 Public Choice Society Vincent & Elinor Ostrom Prize finalist. My Macroeconomic Principles course was recognized for being an outstanding Mason Core course.

My academic interests include public choice economics, history of economic thought, law and economics, and computational social science. I live in Saint Paul, MN with my wife and our children.

Before starting the Ph.D. program I worked several years for an industrial gases company and a consulting firm delivering supply chain solutions.
