I am one of many Cornell faculty working in the areas of macroeconomic
policy, both in the U.S. and in low income countries. Recent work has
included studies of the economies of Portuguese speaking African countries
(particularly Angola and Mozambique), the outlook for the U.S. economy,
and issues in the management of transition economies in Eastern Europe
I currently teach two courses. Open Economy
Analysis (co-taught with
Nancy Chau) is a graduate course in methods for analysing the macroeconomies
of low-income countries. Introduction
to Macroeconomics is an introductory course in macroeconomics.
I am also Director of Graduate Studies for the College of Agriculture
and Life Science's MPS program in International Agriculture and Rural
Development (IARD). More information on this program can be found here and here.
