Teaching, Research/Creative & Consulting Interests

Teaching Interests

I have been teaching since August 2003. I enjoy teaching Introduction to Economics, Principles of Microeconomics, Principles of Macroeconomics, and Intermediate Macroeconomics. I have also taught Managerial Economics, Money and Banking, Economics of Environmental Sustainability, Financial Institutions and Markets, International Monetary Relations and Industrial Organization. Teaching Business Statistics has also been a rewarding experience at the undergraduate level and I have taught Advanced Econometrics at the graduate level as well as International Financial Management.

Research Interests

My research lies within macroeconomics as well as monetary economics. Since I dealt with developing countries in addition to developed countries, in my dissertation, I have an interest in applying recent econometric advances to developing countries as well. My research is applied and I enjoy applying relatively new techniques, especially time-series methods, such as cointegration and error-correction modeling methods, to different topics in money-macro related issues. A sample of my published papers will reflect this fact.
