I teach courses in introductory and advanced economics.  The upper division coursework I teach links contemporary issues in public affairs to economic theory and analyses of public policies. This includes current issues in US Public Policy (TEcon 420); Comparative Social Policy (TPols 425); Economics of Public Policy (TEcon 410); and global economic Challenges (TEcon 440). I also teach data and Discourse (TPhil 251), an introductory curse in quantitative literacy emphasizing literacy and the ability to write clearly and accurately about quantitative information.
