ENTREPRENEURSHIP
I've been involved in a number of entrepreneurial ventures and am fortunate to have an office next to extraordinary colleagues who run the Georgetown Entrepreneurship initiative. We have experimented with classroom projects that encourage entrepreneurial thinking and provide select groups with seed funding to launch a business. I continue to be very interested in connecting pedagogy and entrepreneurship. 
CHARTER CITIES

Paul Romer's proposal for Charter Cities remains one of the most promising ideas for addressing a wide range of global concerns related to poverty, migration, development, and corruption. While Romer and associates have turned their focus to examining urban governance at large, I hope there will be opportunities to explore viable paths forward for the kind of Charter Cities that Romer initially envisioned.

GOVERNANCE & BLOCKCHAINS

Blockchain technologies are interesting for many reasons, but one of the most promising applications may be to solving governance problems in contexts where central authorities are not trusted and there is a need for transparency with regard to votes or processes. I am closely following a number of projects trying use blockchain technologies for governance.  

I'm an academic interested in ethics, education, institutional change, and the methodological foundations of the social sciences.
