Background Information

I am an Associate Professor of Economics at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN. I earned my Ph.D. in economics from the University of Virginia. Since then, I have been teaching Principles of Macroeconomics, Managerial Economics, Industrial Organization, and Law and Economics to undergraduate students. I have published research papers in these areas as well.

Related Pedagogical Projects

I participated in the Teaching Innovations Program (TIP), a NSF funded initiative through the American Economic Association to improve undergraduate education in economics. Based on that experience, I later contributed to the chapter "Case Use in Economics Instruction" in Teaching Innovations in Economics: Strategies and Applications for Interactive Instruction, edited by Michael Salemi and William Walstad. In addition, I have published a case study on hyperinflation and a classroom experiment on double marginalization.

Since 2005, I have been the co-director for the Center of Economic Education at my university. Part of my duties includes offering workshops for grade school and high school teachers on how to incorporate economics in their curriculum and explain economics in basic intuitive ways to their students.
