She has been teaching at St. John’s University since the mid 1980s. Her goal is to show students that economics is interesting and that it applies to everyday life, that economics is accessible, and that an understanding of economics is essential to their future roles as citizens in society. Her research to date has focused mainly on Hungarian economic history, and Hungary’s relations with the European Union. She has also written about effective teaching and the use of technology in teaching to engage students. She has published on these topics and delivered more than 20 papers and chaired several panels at professional conferences. She has also worked with a number of textbook authors in creating supplements to several widely-used college textbooks.
