In May of 2021, I will receive my Ph.D. degree in Economics at Clemson University. This Ph.D. education has enhanced my hands-on experience in applied economics and econometrics. I have solid programming skills in R, STATA, SPSS, SAS, and Python. I have also enrolled in IBM online data science courses, Python and SQL programming, to develop my data science skills further.
Moreover, I have a robust and successful background in teaching college-level economics in engaging ways, both in online and in-person classes. My student evaluations reflect that I am a kind, challenging, and highly effective teacher who uses various technological resources and activities to engage students in lessons.
Additionally, my international development consulting experience before graduate school has broadened my perspective both as a teacher and a researcher. From 2014 through 2016, I worked with different teams on several projects in multi-cultural environments globally, including Vietnam, Liberia, Senegal, Mauritania, and Kenya. I analyzed the economic impacts of policies and public investment projects implemented by the World Bank and USAID, ranging from food fortification in Mauritania, public investment management in Vietnam to agriculture supply chains in Liberia and Senegal.
