Educator | Economist 

Welcome!  I am an Associate 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) measuring what professors do in the classroom and how it impacts students' learning. My secondary research interests are constantly evolving and include, among others, monetary policy, immigration, and labor policy.

My passion is teaching! I teach mainly macroeconomics courses, including my favorite: Intermediate Macro Theory. 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 students to participate in a mock FOMC meeting.
