I am in my 29th year of teaching at SUNY Buffalo State. I teach macroeconomics, money & banking, international finance, history of economic thought, among others. I was chair of the department from 2003 to 2009. I have presented papers at numerous national and international conferences, and I have published articles on wealth inequality, consumption, housing policy, monetary policy, and financialisation, among others. My recent area of research is focused on commodity markets, and I recently published The Political Economy of Food and Finance (2016) with Routledge.
