GRADUATE TEACHING

PHD MACRO I
Simon Fraser University 2015
Required course for entering PhD students; covers basic theory and methods of neo-classical macroeconomics.

PHD MACRO II
Simon Fraser University 2015, 2016
Required course for entering PhD students; applies and extends basic theory to specific research areas, such as labor-market search/matching, business cycles and monetary models.

PHD MACRO TOPICS
University of Pennsylvania, 2000, 2001, 2007
This course dealt with topics related to income and wealth inequality, as well as fertility and household formation.

MSC MACRO I
University of Southampton 2009, 2010
This course is a survey of the basic theory of neo-classical macroeconomics. The emphasis is on solving problems involving inter-temporal decisions and general equilibrium. The main topics are long-run growth, asset-pricing, and business cycles. We consider various flavors of models, including infinite-horizon and over-lapping generations.

MSC MACRO II

University of Southampton 2008 to 2014
This course extends in two ways the knowledge of macro acquired in Macro 1. The first is to expose students to more specialised theory, such as models of unemployment or banking crises. The second is to apply basic theory to quantitative problems, by studying recent research papers in these fields.
