About Me

Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor of Economics at Elon University. I earned my B.S. in Economics from Centre College and my Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Kentucky.

I have two primary research interests: (1) the relationship between economic growth and international trade, and (2) the impact of various pedogogies on student learning outcomes (i.e. economic education). My secondary research interests are constantly involving and include, among others, monetary policy, immigration, and labor policy.

My passion is teaching! I teach mainly macroeconomics courses, including my favorite: Intermediate Macroeconomics. I also enjoy teaching Principles of Economics, International Trade, Money & Banking, and Economic Growth & Development. The newest addition to my repetoire is Elon's Federal Reserve Challenge class. This is a fun class that prepares some of our very best students to participate in a mock FOMC meeting -- it's blast!

Please peruse my site to learn more about my teaching and research.
