My name is Arjun Teotia, and I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for Tobacco Studies at Rutgers University. I received my Ph.D. in Economics from Georgia State University (GSU) in August 2021. I am an applied microeconomist with a focus on health and public economics. My current work includes studying government policy that affects health behaviors such as tobacco use, marijuana use, obesity, maternal, and child health. My research also addresses the issue of misreporting in survey data.

I taught "ECON 2016 - Principles of Microeconomics" in Fall 2019 at GSU. Additionally, I have taught for two years at the University of Delhi, India. As an instructor, my approach prioritizes teaching economics as a useful tool to approach different problems in life and otherwise. My motto to my students is that discipline and consistency are key to be successful. I focus on helping students enjoy and learn economics and deal positively with stressful situations.

My C.V. can be found here.
