About Me

I am currently an assistant professor at Widener University. I am interested in teaching Macroeconomics and Microeconomics at both the introductory and intermediate levels. When teaching, I have three main goals in mind. First, I try to establish a friendly and supportive environment for learning. Second, I try to provide as many real-world examples as possible to help the students understand the real-life applicability of economics theories. Lastly, I believe that becoming a great professor is a continuous process, and a successful professor needs to adjust his/her techniques regularly such that they match with the modern world.
