About Me

Download my CV.

I am a 5th year finance Ph.D. student in the Gatton College of Business at the University of Kentucky, going on the job market in the Fall of 2019. My research focuses on mutual fund governance and investment manager misconduct. I have taught courses and seminars covering introductory corporate finance, Excel, and Python. I was born in Louisiana and obtained my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in finance from Louisiana State University. In my spare time I enjoy traveling, motorcycling, and playing the guitar (poorly).
