Richard Works

Welcome to my website!

As the last name suggests, I have a busy life. My career is three-pronged: (1) EconomistI am a Senior Economist at the Bureau of Labor Statistics in Washington, DC. (2) ProfessorI am also an Adjunct Faculty member at the University of Maryland Global Campus. (3) Minister I have been involved in music ministry since a young age and I am currently a seminary student studying for future ministry opportunities in expository preaching and teaching applied biblical concepts for life.

I completed my doctorate in finance at Capella University in 2016. I earned a master’s degree in finance at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater in 2012, and a bachelor’s degree in economics and finance at Tennessee State University in 2010. I am interested in the field of microeconometrics for business management. My current research focuses on consumer price fluctuations (inflation).

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me.
