Research/Teaching Interests: History of Economics, Thought and Methodology, Technology and the Economy, and International Economics

Dr. Timothy Wunder completed his Ph.D. at Colorado State University during the summer of 2003 in the area of Economic Sociology. Dr. Wunder continues to find himself intrigued by the interplay of the economic realm with the social and cultural influences that interact with it. This fascination with the intersection economics with society and culture shapes his instruction, research, and private life. Dr. Wunder is happily married and lives with his wife and two pets, a dog and a cat. Both animals are firm believers that their desire for attention should supersede Dr. Wunder’s need to get work done.
