About Me

I joined the UW-La Crosse Department of Economics in Fall 2009 after completing my Ph.D. in Economics at Indiana University. I regularly teach multiple sections of introductory level macroeconomics, upper-level undergraduate courses related to macroeconomics and econometrics, and I have taught quantitative research methods in UW-L's MBA program. My primary area of research interest is in macroeconomics and I also occasionally contribute to the scholarship of teaching and learning. I am originally from La Crosse, WI, and I attended UW-La Crosse as an undergraduate student. I am very happy to be working and living back in my hometown and at the university that always felt like home.
