Interests :

Pubic economics, development economics, macroeconomics and monetary economics. 

My Teaching philosophy is :

The main goal of teaching in academia is to arouse the critical thinking of the students and enhance their skills to work independently. Working independently is very important given the fact that little part of the knowledge that is related to a field is taught at the university, the rest is in fact obtained on the job learning. Hence, it is very much important that students are given tasks, such as writing academic papers, from which they can learn how to conduct research independently.

 In science, critical thinking is the motor behind its progress. New theories, which enable us to understand the reality in a better way, are the fruits of the critical thinking of academics. In social science, critical thinking is very much important as the theories in this field affect our normative ideas about the society. Economics as a social science is no exception. Therefore, during my classes I usually refer to the different schools of thought behind the theories and their implications for the society. I use an interactive method where the students are invited to give their opinions about the various theories they are being taught.
