I am an Assistant Professor of Economics at Rochester Institute of Technology. I started at RIT September, 2006, and like most professors, my work consists of research, teaching, and service. I engage in empirical research, and for the past five years, my projects have been in the Health and Labor Economics fields. I teach six classes during the regular academic year at RIT, which is on a quarter system: Microeconomics for Graduate Students (Fall Quarter), Economics of Health Care (Spring); Mathematical Methods: Economics (Fall and Winter); and Principles of Microeconomics (Winter and Spring). I have served on various department and college committees.
