I am a graduate of the Economics PhD program at the University of Kentucky. In Fall 2016, I have joined the Economics Department at the State University of New York at Oswego as an associate professor of economics.
My field of research is international economics with an emphasis on international trade and international agreements (e.g., trade, environmental, and labor). Part of my work involves analyzing the effects of international environmental agreements on trade flows, their carbon/emission content, and on emissions in general. Another part involves looking into how international labor agreements affect aggregate and sector-level exports. Yet another part is focused onto the European integration process and its implications for international trade at both national and firm levels. I am also active in the field economics education. Some of this work has appeared in the Journal of International Economics, Journal of Economic Integration, Journal of Economics and Finance Education, and Journal of Economics Teaching.
In addition, I enjoy teaching, guiding, and helping students understand the secrets of economics. As primary instructor, I have taught over 50 sections of various undergraduate courses including principles of micro and macroeconomics, contemporary economics issues, intermediate microeconomic theory, and international trade and finance. I also had the opportunity of overseeing undergraduate independent study sessions. Currently, I am teaching principles of microeconomics, intermediate microeconomic theory, and international trade to undergraduate students. Recently, I have earned the Certificate in Effective College Education from the Association of College and University Educators (ACUE) and the American Council on Education (ACE).
