Hello, and welcome to the site! I am an Assistant Professor of Economics at Western Carolina University, and my focus is macroeconomics and monetary policy. Specifically, my research looks at the changes in monetary policy with the introduction of unconventional policies, like forward guidance and quantitative easing. I also enjoy teaching, with most of my teaching experience in macroeconomics and econometrics. I received my PhD in Economics from West Virginia University in 2022. Before grad school at WVU, I earned my bachelor’s degree in economics from Lubbock Christian University, where I also played for the golf team and was part of the Honors College.
