I conduct empirical research in the areas of corporate finance, corporate governance, and financial regulation. I teach corporate finance at the Smeal College of Business.

Most of what you need to know is in my Vita. Here is a PDF Vita and an HTML Vita version.

You can find all my working papers and pre-publication versions of published papers in my author SSRN page. I also have a Google Scholar page .

I wrote a "Finance Job Market Advice" note. The advice is based on my subjective job market experiences and my years as a tenure-track professor.

Here is a "fun" letter from my SEC days to a hedge fund trying to attack Select Comfort Corporation (the makers of the Sleep Number bed) with powerpoints posted directly on EDGAR. Note the hedge funds naive capital structure and issuance claims on page 7!


Appendices tend to disappear. Here are links to appendices that go with some of my published papers:


Corporate finance is an ever-changing environment. I like to peek at the Harvard Law School Governance and Financial Regulation Blog and the Columbia Law Schools Blog on Corporations and Capital Markets.
