I am an Assistant Professor of Finance at the University of Connecticut. I got my Ph.D. in Finance from the Fuqua School at Duke University and my B.S. in Finance and Statistics from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.
My research interests are institutional ownership and applications of asset pricing theory to extract information about corporate events and policies, with sub-specializations in corporate governance, information asymmetry, and M&A.
I teach a graduate seminar in asset pricing theory and undergraduate courses in corporate finance.
