I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Insurance, Legal Studies, and Real Estate (ILSRE) in the Terry College of Business at the University of Georgia. My research interests include catastrophe risk, disaster relief, insurer operations, insurance market economics, financial markets, and behavioral insurance.  I teach undergraduate-level Introduction to Risk Management. Before joining the faculty at UGA, I was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Risk, Insurance, and Healthcare Management at Temple University in Philadelphia. My Ph.D. is from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Prior to entering academia, I worked as a broker for Lockton in Atlanta for three years.  I specialized in executive risk lines of insurance - Directors' and Officers', Employment Practices Liability, Fiduciary Liability, Crime (Employee Theft), Kidnap/Ransom, and Errors and Omissions. My work experience drives many classroom discussions.
