Assistant Professor, The Madden School of Business, Le Moyne College

Welcome to my webpage!

I am an Assistant Professor in the Madden School of Business at Le Moyne College. I earned a Ph.D. in Economics from Louisiana State University in 2015. Currently, I am serving as the Finance Program Director, Associate Editor of Studies in Microeconomics, and Editorial Board Member of SN Business & Economics. I am also a fellow of the Global Labor Organization.

My current research explores issues in economic development with an emphasis on corruption, gender, and finance. I also have some papers on coronavirus. This paper comparing economic behaviors during the COVID-19 and the 1776 London Plague discussing the resiliency of core economic concepts over hundreds of years might be interesting to your undergraduate students in courses like Principles of Economics/Microeconomics and Behavioral Economics. I occasionally write popular pieces, some of which are related to my research.
