I enjoy the classroom, and the opportunities I have to teach continue to be rewarding. My teaching portfolio already includes undergraduate classes ranging from principles of microeconomics through upper-division labor economics, and I have interests in applied micro-econometrics, labor, and health at the graduate level.

 

Principles of Microeconomics (EC 201)
(Fall 2016) The central goal of this course is to teach the basic principles of economic thought. The course is designed to provide students with a solid foundation for further study in economics and insight into human decision-making and the behavior of firms. By the end of the semester students should understand these principles, be able to formulate economic hypothesis and critically evaluate evidence that relates to these hypotheses. (Syllabus)

Intermediate Macroeconomics (EC 313)
(Spring 2015) Macroeconomics is the study of the aggregate economy, whether it is at a national or global level. Topics covered in the course will include the determination of gross domestic income, unemployment, the Federal Reserve, inflation, and economic growth. The class will be model-focused, which will require limited calculus, algebra, and the ability to interpret graphs. (Syllabus)

Labor Market Issues (EC 350)
(Summer 2014) This course is designed to provide students with an introduction to labor markets. The first half of the course covers prominent theories of labor economics including labor supply labor demand, human capital, and wages. The remaining lectures cover specific issues such as unemployment, discrimination, immigration, unions, and the role of the government. (Syllabus)

Labor Economics (EC 450) Received GTF Teaching award, Department of Economics
(Summer 2015, Fall 2015, Winter 2016, Spring 2017) This course is designed to provide students with a good foundation for the study of labor and labor markets. The course will familiarize students with theories of labor supply and demand, wage determination, human capital investments, work incentives, and worker mobility. From this theoretical foundation, students will explore key developments in the United States labor market over the past few decades regarding labor-force participation and welfare reform.
