I joined Denison University in 2020 as an Assistant Professor of Economics after earning my Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Utah. I was drawn to Denison because of its outstanding liberal arts educational reputation, and particularly to Denison’s Department of Economics for its intellectual and cultural diversity. I am excited about the opportunity to grow in my career, and to mentor, encourage, and empower my students with knowledge.

Recently, I and my co-author have used time series and panel data econometric methods to analyze the dynamics between productivity growth and structural transformation in Sub-Sahara African Least Developed Countries (LDCs). Currently, I am working on examining more closely the relationship between structural change and aggregate productivity growth for the LDCs as well as country specific analysis.
