While pursuing my doctoral degree I realized how much economics can be interesting and how this discipline shapes our daily life. Economics is everywhere. It explains our needs, choices, decisions, behaviors, resources, and so on.
In my teaching, I strive to help students learn the various concepts and tools within the field of economics so they know how to apply this knowledge towards solving actual problems. I enjoy teaching small classes at Denison University and interacting with interdisciplinary students who are motivated by love of learning and curiosity.
