Finance and General Business
I am interested primarily in the area of corporate finance. Specifically, my work focuses on the intersection of corporate risk management, voluntary disclosure, and corporate governance. A secondary academic interest includes work on the effects of government intervention on bond liquidity and default risk.
Top Scholarly Accomplishments
I am most proud of the opportunities I’ve had to have my research presented in such venues as the Energy Information Administration in the U.S. Department of Energy, Bank of Italy, Bank of International Settlements, World Finance Conference, Financial Management Association Conference, Southwest Finance Association Conference, among others.
I earned my PhD in Finance from the University of Oklahoma, where I taught a variety of undergraduate finance courses in the Price College of Business. Prior to earning my PhD, I also taught courses at West Texas A&M University.
