Assistant Professor of Economics

I am an Assistant Professor of Economics in the Sykes College of Business at the University of Tampa, where I teach Principles of Microeconomics and International Trade & Finance. Previously, I was an Assistant Professor at Hood College in Frederick, Maryland. There I taught a wide range of courses related to microeconomic  theory, quantitative analysis, and international economics. I was profiled for the "Best of Hood" undergraduate faculty, and was the recipient of the 2015 Dr. Henry P. and Page Laughlin Faculty Professional Achievement Award.


My primary research interests are in empirical microeconomics, particularly in the areas of  the economics of migration and migration policy, income remittances, economic development, and household labor decisions, with a focus on Latin American economies.


I received my graduate degrees, M.A. and Ph.D., from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and my B.A. from American University in Washington, DC.
