I am an Assistant Professor of Economics in the College of Business at San Francisco State University (SFSU). I received a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of California at Riverside (UCR). My research interests are in Macroeconomics, Econometrics, and Time Series with a focus on monetary economics, consumer finances, inequality and housing economics. I have prior professional experience in Development Economics at the World Bank and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO). I am an affiliate faculty at the Center for Applied Housing Research.
I have a great passion for teaching and research. I have taught a variety of courses at both the undergraduate and graduate level at SFSU and UC Riverside. These include Macroeconomics, Econometrics, and Forecasting/Time Series Analysis with applications to Micro/Macro/Financial data. I regularly work with students to mentor, develop, and collaborate on research.
My hobbies include traveling, yoga, reading, basketball, watching movies, and photography.
