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 research interests include regional economics, financial economics, the scholarship of teaching & learning, as well as topics in applied microeconomics such as health economics. In addition to my research interests, I am very passionate about both teaching and service to the local community. I regularly provide expertise on economic issues for Northwest Indiana, the State and beyond. Since 2012 I've appeared hundreds of times in international, national, state and regional media.
