I am an Assistant Teaching Professor and Director of Undergraduate Studies in the Department of Economics at the University of California, Irvine. My research and teaching interests are in macroeconomics, monetary policy, and banking. I teach courses in the principles of microeconomics and macroeconomics, intermediate macroeconomics, money and banking, financial markets, and asymmetric information.
Before coming to California, I spent two years in Missoula, Montana where I was Visiting Assistant Professor of Economics at the University of Montana. I received my PhD in Economics from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill where I wrote my dissertation under Michael K. Salemi.
