I did my graduate work in economic theory at the University of Pennsylvania and graduated in 1985. Since then I've been doing doing economics research. My first job was at the University of Arizona where I was fortunate enough to meet up with Vernon Smith and learn from him the experimental method in economics. My first paper, an experiment on 'fiat' money, was published in 1989. As my interest turned to experimental economics it became clear that I needed to learn more about institutional economics, so I left Arizona for a year to do a post-doc with Douglass North at Washington University in St. Louis.
