I completed my graduate studies at the University of Missouri-Columbia in the United States. Given that my undergraduate degree is in mathematics, my interests were divided between mathematics, economics and business including marketing and finance. In order to explore these areas, I took classes from business school, mathematical sciences and economics.
As a result, I ended up earning a master's degree in Applied Mathematics and an MBA degree with Finance emphasis, in addition to a PhD in Economics.
Based on my diverse background, I am competent in teaching courses not only in economics but also in marketing, finance and mathematics.
Areas of interest are microeconomics, industrial organization, and financial economics. I am interested in studying the effects of entry on the efficiency of different types of market structures. In particular, the conditions under which entry creates inefficiencies in oligopoly markets when firms engage in either Cournot (quantity) or Bertrand (price) competition.
