I am a Professor of Economics at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. I joined the UWL Department of Economics in Fall 2009. I have experiencing teaching introductory level macroeconomics, upper-level undergraduate courses related to macroeconomics and econometrics, and MBA-level quantitative research methods. My primary area of research interests include macroeconomics and 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.
