I am currently an assistant professor of finance at Quinnipiac University in Hamden, CT. My research interests include financial institutions and performance measurement, with a particular focus on hedge funds. My co-authors and I have a paper on hedge fund reporting biases that was recently published in the Review of Financial Studies and another on discretionary hedge fund liquidity restrictions that has been accepted for publication at the Journal of Financial Economics. Our work on how funds-of-hedge-funds form their portfolios is forthcoming in Management Science. Our work has been featured by The Economist, The Financial Times, Alpha, and Reuters.
While at Quinnipiac, I have taught introductory finance, financial modeling, and portfolio management at the undergraduate level, as well as portfolio management and a CFA review course at the MBA level. I also currently teach the applied portfolio management sequence, where students manage an equity portfolio with roughly $1.5 million in assets under management.
I received a Ph.D. in finance from Arizona State University (2010), a Masters in Economics from Duke University (2005), and a B.S. in Business Administration (Finance) from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (2000). After graduating from UNC, I worked from 2000-2003 as an analyst/associate for the UNC Management Company, the endowment arm of the university. I have been a CFA Charterholder since 2003.
