I'm a graduate of MIT and have an MBA from the University of Chicago. My goal is to have students understand the principles at the core of economics so they can handle standard as well as unfamiliar problems. Merely memorizing formulas lets you down when confronted with a problem that is a little different from what you have seen before. At the same time I have them focus on thoroughly knowing key relationships and definitions so they do not waste time trying to remember them during a test.
I love economics and hope to show students that economics is fun and very relevant.
I studied economics at MIT as an undergraduate and later at The University of Chicago as part of my MBA. During my career as a high technology executive, I have used economics to manage and plan businesses. I have been studying advanced economics as a passion for many years, and learning did not stop at graduation. Just last fall, I took another Microeconomics course at SFSU for "fun."
