  • Has COVID affected your everyday work life? If so, how? For sure.  ND has stayed with in person classes, but many students join in from zoom.  Teaching in socially distanced classrooms, with everyone wearing a mask, is definitely unusual.    
  • What are some ways this new way of life has benefited the way you look at your daily work operations? It makes me grateful for the watercooler talk I used to have with colleagues. 
  • Has doing more virtual meetings, etc, shown to be more beneficial to how you can be productive in your daily activities? Maybe.  Research projects with far-flung teams of scholars definitely benefit from everyone using zoom
  • Once COVID has slowed down do you think this will affect your future way of continuing to do your work? Zoom has its uses.  But I'll be glad to do seminars and mask-free teaching again!  
  • Has having an Eco degree benefited you during this time? Oh yes!  First, I'm grateful to have a job and job security--I know many have struggled with job security in the past year.  And it is a very painful time for many, but also a time that economists will study going forward for learning more about dealing with economic disruptions
