Welcome to my website.  Following the demise of gandini.unm.edu, which I had hosted for over 10 years, I launched this website in 2013. It has a new host, a new look, and a new domain name (philipganderton.com.)
Here you’ll find an academic section with details on my classes, and my research. Currently I am Senior Associate Dean and Associate Dean for Faculty in the College of Arts and Sciences, but I still teach courses for the Economics Department. There’s also a section about the consulting and expert witness services I offer.
I post occasionally to a blog called Ramblings.  Then there are my personal pages, that let me share a little of myself.  You can read about my obsession with my car, bicycles, photography, woodwork and a few other things.  My photography site has been around the web the longest and doesn’t get the attention from me it deserves I’m afraid.
I hope you find something of interest here. If you do, please comment via Facebook–or not. Thanks for visiting, and cheers!

Hubris! Again?

Just a fraction of a second after this photo of Julian Alaphilippe, newly crowned cycling World Champiion, was recorded, Primoz Roglic, the Slovenian rider in yellow on the left, crossed the finish line of the 2020 edition of Liege-Bastonne-Liege road race to claim the victory. Ultimately Alaphilippe would be relegated to 5th in the race having deviated from his sprinting line to check Marc Hirschi, the rider just to the right in the photo. While the question remains if Hirschi, perhaps the strongest sprinter of the five riders in the lead at the end, would have won if not checked by Alaphilippe, the victory for Roglic was sweet nonetheless, having lost the Tour de France only two weeks earlier to Tadej Pogacar, the other rider visible in the photo.
I posted a blog entry some time ago with another example of hubris, so perhaps it’s a theme that resonates with me, but the examples of some of the best cyclists in the world celebrating before crossing the line–and losing–are legion, and often entertaining. In this case Alaphilippe did himself no favors, especially as he stole the hearts of cycling fans the week before when he won the World Championships with a characteristically daring solo breakaway, and at LBL he showed other sides of his personality by losing the race twice.
