“Like my two cats, the typical Obie is indiscriminately curious. Teaching someone like that is a lot of fun, particularly when it also forces you to expand your own curiosity beyond your discipline’s boundaries. That, for a social scientist like me, is a welcome bonus of teaching here.” - Professor of Economics Viplav Saini
