Teresa Beckham Gramm

Associate Professor of Economics

I received my BA from Agnes Scott College, where I majored in International Studies and Spanish and was a member of Phi Beta Kappa. I received my PhD from UNC-Chapel Hill, fielding in Econometrics and International Economics.

In 1999, I began my first teaching position at Rhodes, first as an assistant professor of economics, and in 2006, as an associate professor. I am currently the Director of the Program in Political Economy, which began in 2011.

My research interests include: measuring domestic reallocation costs due to engaging in international trade and trade policy and the welfare effects of Preferential Trade Agreements. I have taught International Trade and Finance, Development Economics, Macroeconomics, and Money and Banking.

I am married to fellow economics professor Marshall Gramm. My hobbies include our three children, kickboxing, and coffee.
