I am a political economist interested in impact of technology in a country's economy and institutions. I am also interested in the manner in which laws and regulations affect technological development. I have worked for the International Telecommunications Union in Geneva, and often provide training for public officials through the World Bank and the University of Florida. My current research work focuses on the impact of technology on employment with a particular emphasis on the transition towards a more technology dependent society and the policies that will need to set in place to help people displaced by technology to find income alternative.
My secondary research interests include:
Theory development as a means to help young scholars to make contribution to their fields while understanding the work of previous scholars. In this area she has conducted workshops at conferences and universities.
I also have a strong interest in international students and ways of helping them succeed in North American universities.
