I have been teaching in Economics at Massey University since 2004 and now consider teaching as my passion along with my research interest. I prefer an interactive and problem solving oriented teaching environment and believe students appreciate my teaching approach as well. I aim to bring an open mind, a positive attitude, and high expectations to lectures and students.
