Assistant Professor

Accounting Department

Naveen Jindal School of Management

UT Dallas

My hope is that each student walks away from my class with an appreciation for the importance of accounting to our economy and confidence in their own intellect and work ethic.

I also strive to build deep and meaningful relationships with my students, both during the semester they are in my class and in the years that follow. I become more than just a teacher - I become a listener, an encourager, a mentor, and a friend - and this is my favorite part of the job.
