I graduated with a bachelor's degree in International Economics from the International
University of the Americas in San Jose, Costa Rica in 1999. I obtained a M.Sc. in
Economics and Ph.D. in Applied Economics from Auburn University, in Auburn, Alabama,
in 2006. My dissertation essays were in the areas of real estate, environmental, and
I am currently an Associate Professor of Real Estate in the Department of Finance
and Business Law in the Craig School of Business at Fresno State. Besides my teaching
and research responsibilities, I am also Director of the Gazarian Real Estate Center,
which promotes the advancement of real estate education and research in the Central
Valley. I have also been on the Board of Directors of the Community Housing Council
and the Kings River Conservancy, and currently serve on the Board of Directors of
the U.S. Green Building Council Central California Chapter.
With respect to my current research interests, I conduct high-quality research in
the areas of real estate economics and finance. I have published papers in the Journal of Real Estate Finance and Economics, Housing Policy Debate, Journal of Regional
Science, Journal of Housing Research, and Journal of Real Estate Research. I have a profound interest in conducting research on the linkages between real estate
and environmental issues, particularly related to water.
Personally, I am originally from Mendoza, Argentina, but I have also lived in Nicaragua,
Costa Rica, and Peru. Outside of work, my favorite activities are fly-fishing, playing
pickleball, traveling, and spending time with my wife, dogs, and friends.
