I am an Associate Professor of Finance at the Eli Broad College of Business, Michigan State University. My expertise is in corporate finance, risk management, and law and economics. I teach corporate finance to undergraduate and PhD students.
I received the 2013 Brattle Group First Prize, which is awarded annually to the best corporate finance paper published in the Journal and is one of the highest honors in finance. My dissertation received the 2008 Young Researcher Award for the best paper published in the Review of Financial Studies among authors who received their Ph.D. within 3 years. This prize is widely considered as the highest recognition for early career finance research. My articles appeared in academic journals including the Journal of Finance, Journal of Financial Economics, and Review of Financial Studies. I received my Ph.D. in Finance from Columbia University. Prior to joining the faculty at the Eli Broad College of Business, I was a faculty member at the University of Notre Dame.
