I came to CSLA in 1998 after receiving my Ph.D. in Economics at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor.
I will teach a variety of courses but specialize in macroeconomics and international finance. My teaching interests also extend to money and banking, financial institutions and markets.
My research interests are in the areas of macroeconomics, financial economics and international finance.
