Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.
I received my PhD in Economics from Wayne State University in 2001 and my MA in Economics from the University of Detroit Mercy in 1994.
Prior to joining Laurier in 2018, I was a Professor of Economics at Gulf University for Science and Technology in Kuwait, where I taught for 12 years and earned my Associateship in Economics in 2009 and my Professorship in Economics in 2014.
Research Interests / Ongoing Projects
My primary research areas include international finance, open-economy macroeconomics, macroeconomics, and energy economics. The main focus of my research is the empirical validity of the international parity conditions, optimal currency areas and the impact of oil price shocks on the economy.
