Overview

  • I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Economics at UNH. I study Macroeconomic issues in international trade, mostly related to innovation. I also am also interested in other aspects of macroeconomics, such as the process of transformation in an economy from agriculture and manufacturing into services, or policies that affect the efficient allocation of resources.

    I teach regularly Macroeconomics II in the Economics PhD., and international economics at the undergraduate level. I also lead PhD. student presentations on papers of their chosen fields.
