I am the Dean of Faculty Affairs and the Frances and John Downing Family Professor of Economics in the College of Arts and Science at Vanderbilt University.

Two major themes underlying my research are: (i) the inter-relationships between intellectual property rights protection, trade, and technology transfer in the global economy and the (ii) economic underpinnings of the rules and regulations of the contemporary multilateral trading system as embodied in the major trade agreements of the World Trade Organization and its dispute settlement process.

Here are some of my recent publications and my current Curriculum Vitae . A fairly complete list of my research papers and publications can also be found on my Google Scholar page or my REPEC page.
