Personal Statement
My present research centers on policies for sustainable development in the EU and northern Europe. “Sustainable development” does not simply refer to continued economic expansion, but rather growth that neither generates ecological problems nor social instability. My studies examine the formulation of such policies for stimulating this kind of economic development.
In my teaching, I strongly recognize the value of closely working with students both in and outside the traditional classroom setting. For example, in my Field Studies course, I take students on a study tour to Europe so they can concretely experience the realities of that economic system. Activities include visits to enterprises, government ministries, and universities. Students receive lectures and presentations, and have opportunities for exchanges with studies in the regions they visit.
