I am an Assistant Professor in the Economics Department at the University of New Hampshire. I am an applied econometrician.

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