I am a Professor of Economics at Penn State. My main research area is econometrics, but I have also worked on topics in industrial organization and auctions. My main econometric interests are nonparametric and semiparametric estimation and testing, Laplace estimation, nonparametric identification, and the econometrics of games. In the past I have also contributed to the spatial econometrics and nonparametric time series literatures.

Most of my teaching is in econometrics, both at the graduate level and at the undergraduate level. This year (2015/16) my teaching consists of a second year Ph.D. econometrics course (589), an honors probability and statistics course (106h), and a game theory course for seniors (402).

I previously served on the boards of Econometrica the Journal of Econometrics, Econometric Theory, the Econometrics Journal, and the Journal of Time Series Econometrics.

I live in State College, PA, with my wife Jenny and our daughter Caroline. State College is located in Centre County, which is indeed in the very heart of Pennsylvania.
