I have taught specialized upper division, writing intensive courses in international trade and international macroeconomics, in addition to both calculus and non-calculus based principles and intermediate microeconomics and macroeconomics. I also have experience with large lecture (over 300 students) and small classes (under 15 students), and have coordinated instructors and TA's across multiple principles of macroeconomics sections to create a uniform student learning experience (>1000 students, 4 instructors). I have received multiple teaching awards, and several of my undergraduate students have presented the results of their supervised research at undergraduate conferences.
According to Social Science Research Network, I am among the top 200 economic authors in the world (out of 26,975 ranked) gauged by research interest (paper downloads in past 12 months). My cryptocurrency research focuses on their use and implication as a globally traded alternative to national currencies or assets. This incorporates topics such as exchange rates, capital controls, and the global financial and monetary system (including Central Bank Digital Currency). I have been interviewed by various media outlets, including NPR, and have given both academic and non-academic talks. My teaching-focus means that I am exceptionally good at interpreting "academic speak" for a general audience, and I consider public education about economics an important part of my role.
I maintain an active Twitter account, not associated with my employer, where I discuss current academic research (usually economics research on cryptocurrency/DLT), teaching practices, academia, as well as any other wisps that catch my attention.
