What can a student expect when taking one of your classes?
A student can expect to work on applying the economic way of thinking to a variety of current policy issues. Students can also expect to participate — both as “lab rat” and “mad scientist” — in classroom experiments designed to illustrate various economic principles.
When you aren’t teaching, what other activities do you enjoy?
I enjoy attending MC sporting events, lectures, theatre shows and participating in various sporting activities — including volleyball, wallyball, softball, and golf.
Do you prefer flipping through the pages of a book or an e-book?
Either format is fine depending on the circumstances.
What is your favorite location on campus and why?
Aside from the various classrooms that I teach in, I am partial to Court 2 in the bottom of Dyson Baudo where a group of faculty play a mean game of wallyball every Friday afternoon.
