Teaching

I teach two courses at Dartmouth:  an introductory course to statistics (Economics 10, “Introduction to Statistical Methods”) and the culminating seminar in public economics (Economics 48, “Topics in Public Economics”).  The courses are “bookends” on the excellent research training that the Dartmouth Economics Department offers undergraduates, taking students from the rudiments of statistical inference and research design to writing an original empirical research paper on a topic of their choice.  In recent years, several alumni of Economics 48 (and my Economics 10 course, in some cases!) have gone on to write Honors Theses under my supervision.

In July 2017, I became Director of the Dartmouth Economics Research Scholars program, an initiative established by the Economics Department at Dartmouth in 2013 with the goal of providing additional mentoring and support in economics research to students with strong research potential and high academic standing.  You can find out more here.
