Finance and Economics apply mathematical techniques to the solution of real world problems. These disciplines are not only sciences, but are also tied to real world practice. As a professor, I believe experiential teaching/learning is the key to our students. I therefore conduct my teaching to bring my work experience in industry to the classroom, and assign students case studies, require them to solve real problems, engage in discussions of current debates in business, etc. As a researcher, I concentrate on empirical studies, applying real financial and economic data to address practical issues. My teaching interests are International Finance, Financial Management, Risk Management, Personal Finance, etc. My current research interests are International Finance, Financial Cycles, Business Cycles, and Monetary Policy.
