I am an Assistant Professor in the Economics Department at the University of New Hampshire. I am an applied econometrician. My main research interests are in nonparametric and semiparametric econometrics, nonlinear econometrics methods, and microeconometrics.

I teach an undergraduate introductory-level econometrics course, and I also teach our PhD program's first and fourth (and final) econometrics classes, where we cover the theory and applications of linear and nonlinear econometrics methods, respectively.

I was also the coordinator of our Economics Department Seminar Series for four years, where the Economics Department Seminar is also a course in our graduate program. In addition to these, I held the Research Workshop classes along with the seminars, where these classes were designed to help PhD students to gain experience with different forms of presentations. Moreover, I organized Econometrics Brown Bag Meetings as a part of the Research Workshop class.

Please see my CV for a complete list of my teaching and research. (The description provided below, over which I don't have control due to technical limitations set by the system, is incomplete. Furthermore, the research interests on this page are listed alphabetically.)
