I joined the Economics Department at St FX in 2010; however, I have spent about 25 years learning, teaching and practicing Economics in several (and often concurrent) positions in both government and academia. Most notably I spent 14 years at the Bank of Canada in Ottawa where I developed some expertise in modeling the relationship between financial market developments and the economy. Consequently, my teaching style often involves applying classroom theory to current economic events to help students better understand the usefulness of the material being taught.
