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 recently published (January 2013) in the Review of Financial Studies. Our work has been featured in The Economist, The Financial Times, Alpha, and by Reuters.
While at Quinnipiac, I have taught introductory finance, financial modeling, and portfolio management at the undergraduate level and a portfolio management and CFA review course at the MBA level. As of the fall of 2013, I am teaching our applied portfolio management course, where students manage an equity portfolio with over $1 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) with a minor in philosophy 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.
