Teaching

My main teaching specialties include International Economics (primarily macroeconomics and finance) and Data Analysis. I have designed or re-imagined a number of courses, creating written and video materials in the process. I also enjoy teaching economic principles and educating consumers about personal finance. 

I am a firm believer that economics must be used to explain realworld events, and structure my courses with that goal in mind. I have extensive experience and interest in serving firstgeneration and other nontraditional students, as well as Englishlanguage learners and those for whom the opportunity to attend college will make a major impact in their lives.

My data analysis materials are located on GitHub.
My macroeconomics videos are arranged by course (with readings) and are also on YouTube.
