Assistant Professor of Finance

“There were many pluses for joining the Fisher College faculty—the quality of my colleagues, a nice balance of research and teaching, and a lovely community for my family. And then there is the wonderful Fisher campus itself. Not only are the offices fabulous, but the classrooms that we teach in are terrific—chalk-free boards, beautiful wood surroundings, comfortable furniture and great equipment.
