I joined Elizabethtown College in fall 2002. Before joining Elizabethtown, I taught economics at a liberal-arts college in the Midwest for 10 years. I have taught courses in microeconomics, macroeconomics, mathematical economics, international economics, economic development, and managerial economics. As part of the International Organizations Seminar course, I lead a study tour to Geneva. In the past I have led study tours to Brussels (European Union), Bangladesh (Yunus Centre, Grameen Bank), and the United Nations in New York.
I served as the chair of the Department of Business from 2008-2012, and as associate chair from 2003-2008. I have served on the College’s Academic Council, Personnel Council, and Resources and Strategic Planning Committee.
My research interests include globalization, trade policy and innovation. I write on economic issues for the regional newspaper (Patriot-News), academic issues for the college newspaper (Etownian), and whatever interests me in my blog (The Moving Hand Writes). I probably drink too much coffee for my own good.
I have a Ph.D. in economics from the State University of New York, Buffalo, and Bachelor’s of Technology in Civil Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras.
