Prof. Rimvydas (Rim) Baltaduonis can do a lot. As assistant professor of economics at Gettysburg College, he explores academic interests in energy and financial markets, experimental economics, industrial organization, mechanism design, and game theory. Oh, and he speaks seven languages too.
But even Baltaduonis needs a helping hand once in a while.
Senior Taylor Smart is serving as Baltaduonis’ current research assistant for the 2012-13 academic year. It is a position that encompasses more than simply aiding his professor in tackling a lengthy to-do list; his role extends beyond the campus to the farthest corners of the globe.
