Background Information:

I am Associate Professor of Economics at the College of Wooster. I also contribute to the International Relations Program. I co-founded and served as a director of Wooster's award winning Social Entrepreneurship (SE) Program. SE is an experiential learning program where participants learn about entrepreneurship and poverty by working with social enterprises/NGOs. Since 2005, we have worked with over 25 non-profit clients in Ohio and abroad and helped launch four businesses whose revenues fund the non-profit mission raising over $100,000 a year. Currently, I co-lead the Center for Diversity and Global Engagement.


My economics research interests include macroeconomics especially as it is applied to trade, agriculture, growth and monetary economics. My papers have appeared in the Journal of Environmental Economics and Management, Water International and edited volumes on financial crisis. I recently completed a draft of a paper on Islamic bank efficiency in Malaysia and am also working on a paper about discouraged workers.
