My commitment to teaching is something I hold in the highest regard because I believe that economics is one of the most important disciplines to study; the tools and concepts permeate all other social sciences, and are invaluable for citizens of the modern world. My goal as faculty, researcher, and student advocate, is to facilitate problem solving and informed citizenship.
