I teach courses in financial economics, macroeconomics, and econometrics. My teaching of these and other courses is influenced by my undergraduate training in philosophy, specifically epistemology, and by the philosophy of science.
My research interests are broad. I am interested in how economic actors make decisions in complex, changing, and uncertain environments, and how such imperfect information shapes the ability of markets and of firms to allocate resources.
Mentoring student research is an important dimension of my teaching. Ongoing mentored student research projects provide unique opportunities to challenge students to think, write, and speak more effectively. Examples of student projects can be found on my website.
