I have a PhD in economics that I earned in 1991 from the University of Notre Dame, but my path to becoming an Instructor here took many turns.
I have taught business, finance, management, economics, forecasting, statistics, computer science and operations research at a variety of universities and degree programs while working in industry full-time.
Before joining the College of Pharmacy in 2008, I spent five years at Bell Labs in New Jersey and 10 years at Pinnacle West Corporation in Phoenix. At the University of Arizona, I have taught Health Care Economics and Policy, Foundations of Economics for Health Sciences, and Professional Practice Management.
My research interests are in telemedicine, diagnostic testing, health outcomes and health care finance with a focus on cardiovascular disease and lung cancer.
In my free time, I enjoy exploring the vast hiking trail systems around Phoenix, working in my garden and camping in Arizona’s high country. Since moving here in 1997, I think we are finally getting used to the weather, but not the heat.
