My undergraduate teaching has been primarily in Microeconomics, Political Economy, Law and Economics, and Public Policy; my honors and master’s-level teaching has been in Applied/Managerial Microeconomics, Public Finance and Public Choice, Law and Economics, and Research Methods. I have also taught a class on Entrepreneurship, which focuses on the theories and process of entrepreneurship and the role creativity plays in that process. I also occasionally teach Advanced (Mathematical) Microeconomics for seniors (and math majors) who intend to go on to graduate school and an Economics and Literature class that examines the interplay between economics and fiction.
I have considerable practice teaching in both large lecture halls and in small seminars, have supervised teaching assistants, and coordinated numerous class streams.
In March 2014, I was awarded Florida Atlantic University’s highest university-wide award for Excellence and Innovation in Undergraduate Advising, largely owing to my substantial thesis supervision (I’ve supervised over 70 Honors theses). In March 2010, I was awarded FAU’s highest university-wide teaching award for Excellence and Innovation in Undergraduate Teaching. A number of my student advisees have presented their work at international conferences or published in refereed academic journals.
