Hi, I’m Harrison.

I will be joining the Vassar College Economics Department as an Assistant Professor starting Fall 2024.

I am an applied macroeconomist with research interests that lie at the intersection of monetary economics, macrofinance, international finance, and the Chinese Economy. I was a Dissertation Fellow at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston in 2022. In addition to my research, I am an award winning educator (The Milam‑McGinty‑Kaun Award for Excellence in Teaching — Social Sciences Division, UC Santa Cruz) with extensive higher-education teaching experience in both in-person and remote modalities. At the community college level, I have been an Economics adjunct faculty at Saddleback College since 2017, as well has having taught a few semesters at Cypress College. I am also currently certified at Saddleback College for distance learning and remote instruction. At the university level, I have taught economics at CSU Fullerton and CSU Los Angeles. At UC Santa Cruz, I have been a teaching assistant in various courses, as well as the instructor of record as a Teaching Fellow for the Introduction to Econometrics courses.
