I’m a Senior Lecturer in the Economics Department at Cornell University. I currently teach courses in microeconomics, labor economics and personnel economics. My past experience includes teaching microeconomic theory, macroeconomic theory and econometrics at New York University. In 1998, I was awarded the NYU College of Arts and Sciences Outstanding Teaching Award, and in 1999 I was awarded the NYU Economics Society Students’ Appreciation Award.
My teaching philosophy centers on presenting complex concepts in an intuitive manner and demonstrating the relevance of those concepts to real-world issues. In all of my classes, I incorporate active learning techniques encompassing a variety of learning activities, relying on my LMS and supplemental technologies to engage students and bring the course materials to life.
Prior to my appointment at Cornell, I spent 15 years working as an economic and statistical consultant specializing in the analysis of equal employment opportunity in workplace decisions. I have provided analyses and expert testimony on hiring, promotion, termination, and compensation decisions in federal and state courts throughout the United States.
I earned my Ph.D. in Economics from The New School for Social Research in 1999.
