I joined the Bradley faculty in fall 2016, excited to begin my professional career after working as a graduate instructor. I look forward to a long career involving teaching, research, and service.


I have experience teaching many courses, including Labor Economics, Environmental Economics, and Econometrics. In all of my teaching, I focus on making economics relevant to the daily lives of students and current events that affect them. At Bradley, I am teaching Principles of Microeconomics, and will be introducing a new course on Behavioral Economics.


My research focuses on behavioral economics, especially individual preferences involving time and risk. I focus on unique applications of these preferences, so far to the effort versus leisure decision. I look forward to bringing economic experiments to the Bradley community.
