I am an Assistant Professor of Economics at Manhattanville College in Purchase, New York, where I teach Microeconomics, Statistics, International Economics and Economics of Developing Countries. My research interests are at the intersection of culture and economic development. I am interested in the use of digital media in improving economics instruction.
