I am an Economics Ph.D candidate at Fordham University. Currently, I am teaching Introduction to Microeconomics and completing my  dissertation. In past semesters, I have also taught Introduction to Macroeconomics. As an instructor,  I strive to create an interactive and dynamic learning environment that encourages student participation, discussion and independent learning while presenting material in the context of current events.

My research interests are in the fields of international and development economics, specifically in remittances flows, currency markets and exchange rates, financial development and financial integration in emerging markets. The focus of my dissertation concerns exchange rate volatility in emerging markets and developing economies. My work addresses how remittance inflows impact exchange rate volatility and, in turn, economic stability in these countries and whether alternative policy tools, such as currency options contracts, can aid central bank intervention into currency markets.
