Professor of Economics

Research and/or Creative Works

Prior to obtaining a Ph.D. from American University in 1994, I worked as an economist in Haiti in the pre- and post-Baby Doc era for USAID. That experience shaped my interest in developing countries and issues of inequality. Since then, my research has explored the relationship between intergroup inequality by class, race, and gender, on the one hand, and economic growth and development, on the other. I have also studied the impact of globalization on inequality, the implications of the financial crisis of 2008, gender effects of religiosity, and racial and gender impacts of contractionary monetary policy. More generally, I have focused on the economics of stratification—that is, the economic institutions that lead to and perpetuate economic inequality. In the policy arena, I have contributed to research on macroeconomic policy tools for financing and promoting gender equality.

At the local level, several years ago, I began working as a faculty advisor to Uncommon Alliance, a group comprised of members of the community of color and the area police departments. This group formed after community members raised concerns about racial profiling by law enforcement. Since that time, with my co-author, Nancy Brooks, I have conducted numerous studies of Vermont’s traffic stop data to identify and understand racial disparities in Vermont policing, and some of those studies are listed below.

In addition to my appointment in the Economics Department, I am a Research Associate of the Political Economy Research Institute at the University of Massachusetts/Amherst and a Fellow of the Gund Institute for the Environment. My work has appeared in Cambridge Journal of Economics, Development and Change, Structural Change and Economic Dynamics, and World Development,among others. I am co-editor of two books, Critical and Feminist Perspectives on Financial and Economic Crises (2015), and Inequality, Development, and Growth. Co-editor. (2011). I have been fortunate to be able to work as advisor or consultant to numerous international organizations including the World Bank, United Nations Development Program, the Asian Development Bank, UNDP, US AID, and UN Women.
