Economics and Northwest Indiana
I am an Associate Professor of Economics at Indiana University Northwest in the the School of Business and Economics. I received my Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I also serve as the Director of the Center for Economic Education & Research (CEER) at Indiana University Northwest.
My primary interest is in the scholarship of teaching & learning, financial economics, regional economics, as well as topics in applied microeconomics including health economics. In addition to my research interests, I am very passionate about both teaching and service to the local community. I am actively involved with pedagogical research as well as pioneering new teaching approaches. I am also very active in the local community and since 2012 I've appeared hundreds of times in international, national, state and regional media.
