- Present



I started my career at Denison University in 2013. There are two aspects of my job that I appreciate and enjoy the most. First, the economics department here consists of scholars with various cultural and intellectual backgrounds. In here intellectual diversity is truly harbored and valued. I have been enjoying 100% academic freedom in my teaching and scholarship since the day one. Second, in Denison I am able to work closely with students both inside and outside of classroom. I am often inspired by my students and constantly growing intellectually with them.

Research Details

As an intellectually curious individual, I have been working on wide-ranged research topics with verities of methodologies. In my research I like to combine ideas in classical political economy with modern quantitative techniques such as mathematical modeling, simulations and statistics. Most of my research addresses socially relevant issues such as uneven development, distributional conflicts and labor issues related to international trade.
