My name is Richard Paulsen and I have a PhD in Economics from the Department of Economics at Northeastern University. In Fall 2020 I’ll be joining the Department of Economics at Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania as an Assistant Professor. I currently work as a lecturer in the Department of Economics at the University of Vermont. For the Spring 2020 semester I’m teaching Microeconomic Theory (intermediate), Economics Methods (statistics), and a 170 student section of Principles of Microeconomics. This past fall I taught four courses: Microeconomic Theory, Economics Methods, Health Economics, and Sports Economics.
