I joined Austin College because of the benefits for students and faculty in small-sized classrooms, the comprehensive care for students, and the closely integrated college community. While studying Mathematics as an undergraduate, I was thrilled to discover that Economics builds on mathematical theories and statistical methodologies. Since then, I have fallen in love with Economics! My current research interest is U.S. income volatility/divergence at individual and state levels. If you take my courses, you can answer the following questions: What are the side effects of rent control and minimum wage policies? How does interest rate play a significant role in inflation, employment, and investment? When does a market work well without a central government? I believe I will constantly grow through interactions with students where it evolves in ways I cannot predict as it unfolds.
