I am a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Economics Department at Arizona State University, where I teach a mix of in-person, online, and hybrid courses.
I see economics everywhere and am passionate about using research-based teaching methods to show my students how to use economics to interpret the world around them and make better-informed decisions.
The focus of my research is on evaluating the effectiveness of novel teaching methods.
