I grew up in south western Connecticut where I learned to love atheltics through the sport of rowing. I received his BA cum laude and his MA in Economics in 2005 from Boston University. While at BU, I joined the track team and toward the end of my time there started running marathons. In 2010 I graduated from the University of Oregon with my PhD in Economics. At Oregon I was influenced by the abundance of farmers markets and fresh wholesome foods.
This Fall I am teaching Principles of Macro, International Finance, and CIE. Most of the course content will be available on Blackboard.
I have specialized in macroeconomics, specifically in a topic called learning, which refers to agents using econometrics to form expectations. Recent interests include using Bayesian techniques to estimate DSGE models that incorporate learning behavior.
