Niroj Bhattarai

Social & Behavioral Sciences - Larimer Campus & Online Learning

Niroj is the Lead-Faculty of Economics at FRCC-Larimer. He teaches courses both on campus and online. He is currently working on the completion of his dissertation to obtain PhD in Economics. His fields of interest are Public Finance and Economic Development. Lately, he has been working on the city level two sector Dynamic Stochastic General Equilibrium (DSGE) model, and recently presented a paper on the topic at the Regional Science Association International Conference in Denver, Colorado and WSGWE Conference at the University of Utah, Salt Lake City.

Teaching Philosophy

Niroj believes that students should be exposed to the various ways of learning, obtaining, and analyzing information. He emphasizes logical explanation rather than memorization of concepts in economics. His teaching philosophy embraces an interdisciplinary approach. Niroj believes that it is important to educate students with principles and skills to help them understand the relationships within and between various academic disciplines. He is open to all points of views, and expects active student participation in the discussions. He aspires, not to finish a certain chapter in a given period, but rather to inspire students to understand, appreciate, and further study the relationships among economic, social, and political issues.
