Mónica I García-Pérez
Department of Economics
I received my PhD. in Economics in 2009 from the University of Maryland, College Park (USA). My dissertation was focused on workers and owners' interactions across ethnic/race groups and place of birth in small and medium size firms. I looked at the effect of this interactions on wages and employment opportunities by each group. I also participate in a serie of projects on selfemployment and small businesses development carried by the Center of Economics Studies at the Census Bureau. I have done research on economics of immigration, labor economics and macroeconomics.
Currently, I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Economics at St. Cloud State University (SCSU). At SCSU I teach microeconomics, principles and intermediate, econometrics (undergraduate and graduate), and labor economics. I am an active researcher and contributor to the SCSU College of Social Sciences Research Group on Immigrant Workers in Minnesota.
In my free time I do yoga, salsa dancing, go to the gym and cinema. Now, in the gym I am becoming a fan of Zumba and Hip Hop classes. During Winter I tried cross country skiing and snow shoes for the first time in my life. I wanted to try snow kitting, but Winter passed too fast. If you can send me a list of good sports to try during the Winter, I will very happy to try (except ice fishing).
