I have a Ph.D. in economics from Texas A&M University concentrating in econometrics and statistics. I worked in AT&T’s business research and forecasting divisions, applying economics and statistics to solve business problems. I also worked at AT&T Bell Labs (and later AT&T Labs) in their Consumer Lab Division applying statistical methods to consumer studies. After leaving AT&T Labs, I founded my own economic and statistical consulting firm in the Princeton area.

I've been an adjunct professor of economics at Rutgers University for over 28 years teaching a variety of courses, a few of which are: Principles of Economics (Micro and Macro); Intermediate Microeconomic and Macroeconomic Theory; Econometrics; Economic Forecasting; and Financial Economics. I was also an adjunct professor of mathematics and statistics at The College of New Jersey specializing in statistics; an adjunct assistant professor at Mercer County Community College where I taught basic economics and statistics; a part-time lecturer at the University of Houston where I taught macroeconomics to MBA students.

I encourage my students to reason through a concept or problem, often with intuition as a guide, and ask as many questions as needed until they understand the concepts. Learning is best accomplished when questions are asked -- and the best answers given either by the teacher or deduced by the student.

Econometrics

I have been teaching econometrics for a number of years as a professor of economics at Rutgers University. In addition, I worked for 40 years as a professional economist and econometrician at Bell Labs and in my own consulting company.

Economics

I have a Ph.D. in economics plus I've been an adjunct professor of economics at Rutgers for over 28 years. I've taught a number of economics courses such as Principles of Economics (micro and macro), Intermediate Micro and Macro Theory, Econometrics, Economic Growth, Comparative Economic Systems, Financial Economics, and Economics of Capital Markets. My experience in bringing students who know little to nothing about economics to knowing the concepts and ideas and being able to think like an economist is extensive.

Probability

Probability theory is an essential component of statistics. In fact, statistics per se could not exist without probabilities. I have extensive training in and practical use of statistics in every day business problems. All of which is based on probability theory. Refer to my statistics qualifications for more information.

Statistics

I have a an extensive background in statistics. Half my graduate education was in the Institute of Statistics at Texas A&M University. In addition to my formal education, I taught statistics in the math department at TCNJ for a number of years, worked as a statistical researcher at Bell Labs doing consumer research, and I have my own statistical consulting company.
