Teaching

I teach, a lot.

Over the years, I’ve taught several intermediate and introductory micro and macroeconomics courses. I’ve also taught graduate statistics for engineers.

At Lafayette, I also teach and will continue to teach a lot. In the 2013-2014 school year, I will be teaching:

Intermediate Microeconomics

Fundamentals of Econometrics: This course is the undergraduate version of the statistics course I taught to engineers at CU. Basically, baby econometrics with a research paper. It has lots of math and writing. It includes frequent homework assignments, data management, programming in STATA, reading recent popular economics press, and presentations.

Econometric Analysis: An advance version of Fundamentals, this is a first course in econometrics for undergraduate students with a strong math and statistics background. In addition to the above, we derive utilize matrix algebra, perform paper replications and do various regression projects.

In the past, I have also taught:

Introductory Microeconomics: This is the microeconomics version of your 101 class. It includes basic microeconomic theory–firm, consumer, market–, algebra, graphing, and some current events.

Latin American Economic History and Development: This course is Latin American development and economic history through my eyes, so might be more heavily concentrated on countries I’ve inhabited or studied. Starting with pre-colonial health and moving through the trajectory of economic development in Latin America, there is a particular focus on macroeconomic crises, Venezuela, natural resources, and the consequences of growth. Includes an independent research paper, significant in-class discussion of current and past Latin American economic events, challenges, crises, and more.

Quantitative Methods: See Fundamentals of Econometrics above

Gettysburg students can access course information through Moodle or Student Center on the Gettysburg Website.
