Teaching Statement

Economics, as a discipline, has two significant comparative advantages over other social sciences. One is the theoretical framework of utility maximization. The other is its deep commitment to careful empirical analysis of real world issues that takes problems like unobserved selection seriously. When I teach students economics my primary goal is to teach them to think like an economist, by appreciating both these aspects of our discipline. This means ensuring that they leave my class better trained in the economic method than when they entered. To me this entails, in general, favoring conceptual depth over breadth.
