Bio

My background is in social sciences and in economics in particular. I joined Johnson & Wales more than 20 years ago after a long teaching career in Russia. I have extensive international experience of teaching in Russia, Sweden and the United States in Economics, Comparative Economics, and Strategic Management.

I am trying to help my students become global citizens who understand the problems that humankind is facing now — the hope being that they become future leaders focused on finding efficient solutions of these problems.
