Effective teaching and research should synergistically inform one another, and instructors and students are partners along this path. I realize that my students, by virtue of exposure to new material and ideas, will learn concepts, but am most satisfied when they develop the ability to ask and begin to answer better questions. I love to teach, and hope my students learn as much from me, materials I've organized, and peers as I do from them.
I am currently designing a course on "Innovative Markets," and another on the "Sociology of Real Estate." I also hope to teach about Securitization, Global Strategy, Inequality, and Networks & Organizational Change in the near future.
