Tsegay Tekleselassie

Visiting Lecturer in Economics


My primary research focuses on development economics, labor economics, and political economy.

I am passionate about exploring the economic factors that drive societal progress and policies that can enhance economic development and improve labor markets for gainful employment.

Prior to joining Wellesley College, I was a Visiting Assistant Professor of Economics at Northeastern University (2022-2024) and a Senior Researcher at the Policy Studies Institute in Ethiopia.

At Wellesley, I teach Principles of Microeconomics (ECON 101), Principles of Macroeconomics (ECON 102), and Economic Development (ECON 320).
