My teaching interests span a broad variety of courses. I have taught Principles of Microeconomics five times as a graduate student instructor, so I am well-prepared to teach microeconomic theory at introductory, intermediate, and MBA levels. I enjoy teaching quantitative methods courses like statistics and econometrics, and my teaching evaluation showed that I am very effective in such classes. I was deeply impressed and inspired after attending the Summer Institute organized by the Center for the History of Political Economy at Duke University in the summer of 2011. I look forward to incorporating the history of economic thought into my macroeconomics classes and offering an elective course on this subject, if there is enough interest. Of course, I am more than happy to teach classes related to my research interests in public finance, urban economics, and economic history. I am committed to putting more economic history and history of economic thought into all classes that I teach.
Besides what is mentioned above, courses that I am capable of offering also include international trade, development economics, corporate finance, money and banking, and Chinese economy. Lastly, I enjoyed participating in inter-disciplinary courses as a student. If the opportunity presents itself, I would develop inter-disciplinary workshops with faculty members in other schools and departments.
