Research Interests/Other Interests:
My academic interests are international trade, foreign relations, economic and human development, and economic systems. I am also interested in research about learning styles: I am heading a study on how the different types of learners perform in various subject matters and with various professors, and how learning styles are related to retention rates.
In my other life, I like watching football (Green Bay Packers, Cleveland Browns, Ohio State, Tennessee), basketball (I love college hoops, shoot the rock!), baseball (Reds and Indians), and hockey (Avalanche, Flyers, and I was a huge Nordique fan). I bike, golf, play basketball and softball, and listen to heavy metal and alternative music (Black Sabbath, Scorpions, Iron Maiden, Venom, Metallica, Alice in Chains, and Pearl Jam).
