About me

I am a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Economics at State University of New York at Fredonia, Fredonia, NY. I received my Ph.D. in Economics from the Department of Economics, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Milwaukee, WI, in August, 2012.

My primary research interest is in Real Estate related topics. My work has focused on the lending behavior of financial institutions, racial and/or ethnic disparities in mortgage application denials, and what types of denials, for example, poor credit history, debt-to-income ratio, insufficient collateral, etc. are most important for each racial or ethnic group. In addition, I am also interested in cross-country studies, particularly on the issues of income inequality, financial development, corruption, and governance.

I received my M.A. in Economics from University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee at Milwaukee, WI in August, 2007. Prior joining to SUNY Fredonia, I worked at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Saginaw Valley State University, and Sheldon B. Lubar School of Business. My hobbies include tennis, soccer, bowling, biking, movies, music, hiking, traveling, and photography.
