I am an Associate Professor in the Economics Department at the University of New Hampshire. I am an applied econometrician. My research is centered around in nonlinear and flexible econometric methods.

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 am also the coordinator of our Economics Department Seminar Series.

In addition to these, in the past, for four years, I held the Research Workshop classes along with the seminars, as a part of which I organized Econometrics Brown Bag Meetings to help students gain experience with different forms of presentations.

Please see my personal website 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.)
