With UHERO, I prepare forecasts and analysis for the US, global, and Hawaii economies, including impacts of federal and local policies, international linkages, and structural change.


I am an award-winning teacher, with an established reputation as an informed and dynamic speaker who presents economic concepts in a way that is very accessible to business and general audiences. 


I specialize in macroeconomics and the global economy, particularly the study of the US and its links to Asia, macroeconomic policies, global value chain production arrangements, demographic change, and patterns of international trade and finance.
