After an excellent visit at ITAM in Mexico City during November and December 2017, I returned to teaching in spring 2018 in order to take over Raghu Sundaram's Futures and Options classes after he was appointed to be the new Dean of the NYU Stern School. I now have the second half of my sabbatical this fall.
