Visiting Instructor, Shahram Amini

The Roanoke College Economics Program has three new faces amongst the faculty this year. Over the course of the coming weeks you will be introduced to each one. 

Meet Shahram Amini.

Shahram Amini is teaching two Principles of Macroeconomics courses in the Economics Program this semester, and will take on FOUR classes next semester.  All of this while he finishes his dissertation for a PhD in Economics from Virginia Tech!  He is very busy.

Shahram is no stranger to academia.  He has both a bachelors and masters degree in electrical engineering.  He has moved on to Economics, earning his masters from Virginia Tech.  He is currently finishing his dissertation for the PhD in Economics.

Shahram is a very active man who enjoys playing sports, especially tennis, and different kinds of outdoor activities including hiking and biking. Traveling is his passion.  Shahram states "I've had a nomadic life style and have traveled to many places."

We are glad that his travels took him to Roanoke College.  If you have a chance, take one of his classes.  Welcome to Roanoke College Shahram!
