He is interested in macroeconomics and history of economic thought. In macroeconomics, students develop the quantitative research skills using SPSS to test the economic theories they are studying, getting an introduction to econometrics as part of the course. History of Economic Thought is based on a role playing environment, where students assume the role of a major thinker in economic thought for the entire semester.
