Before joining Minerva, Robson Morgan worked as a Postdoctoral Research Scholar at the University of Southern California’s Center for Economic and Social Research. Specializing in happiness economics — the quantitative and theoretical study of happiness — his research focuses on answering the question: what policies can governments implement to make their citizens happier? Morgan earned his Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Southern California, and his B.A. from the University of British Columbia. 

Morgan believes Minerva’s interactive classroom environment is vastly superior to the traditional lecture. In his own words, he says, “The constant interaction during class not only allows the students to get more out of each session, but it also allows me to get to know my students better. I love seeing them grow into dynamic intellectuals and powerful change makers.” Hearing the ambitious aspirations of his students fuels Morgan’s passion for guiding them along their education journey.
