Dr. Srinidhi Anantharamiah, or Shree, as I like to be called, was born in Mumbai (Bombay), India and came to the USA when I was about five. I grew up in Ohio and in New Jersey, where my parents instilled in him the values of succeeding in America no matter what my ethnic heritage was, and the importance of hard work and of dedication. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree from Rutgers University, my Master’s from New Mexico State University, and my Doctorate from Utah State University. I have worked in industry for a number of years as a financial analyst for WorldCom, a leading telecommunications company of the 1990’s.

I later realized that teaching was my true calling in life when I began teaching economics classes for Florida Metropolitan University in 2001. I believe that economics is the “philosophy of life.” I am fascinated with economics because it deals with aspects of human behavior that is seen on a regular basis, yet is rarely taken notice of as economic behavior. No matter what the background of an individual, he/she tries to satisfy wants or needs given limited resources and limited choices on a daily basis. I strongly feel that teaching the future leaders and movers of our society is a noble calling and that I emphasize to my students that I learn from them just as much as they learn from me.

I have taught economics classes for various academic institutions in Central Florida. They have included Florida Metropolitan University, Brevard Community College, and Webster University. I have been affiliated with Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University since 2003. Of all the higher educational institutions that I have taught for, I can say without hesitation that Embry-Riddle has been the most encouraging and supportive to my style and methodology of teaching. I was honored to be chosen as the Embry-Riddle Faculty of the Year for both the Space Coast Campus and the Southeast Region in 2005. I could not have achieved this distinction without the support and dedication of my students. After all, what is a general without an army to fight battles or a football coach without a team to compete?

As part of my research interest, I like to write reviews and critiques of economic, political, and social literature. My reviews have appeared on various internet sites such as Amazon.com, WRMEA.com, and IMDB.com. While not teaching, I enjoys surfing on the internet, watching old movies, listening to music from the 60’s and 70’s, and walking as an exercise.
