About The Region Economist
Hi there! I’m an Associate Professor of Economics at Indiana University Northwest in the the School of Business and Economics and have a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I also serve as the Director of the Center for Economic Education & Research (CEER) at Indiana University Northwest.
My research interests include regional economics, financial economics, the scholarship of teaching & learning, as well as topics in applied microeconomics such as health economics. I am very passionate about both teaching and service to the local community. I regularly provide expertise on economic issues for Northwest Indiana, the State and beyond. Since 2012 I've appeared hundreds of times in international, national, state and regional media as well as spoken to community organizations.
