ABOUT ME

I'm an assistant professor at George Mason University School of Business, specializing in corporate finance. My research focuses on  boards, ETF & mutual fund performance, and hedge fund activism. I am also a regular contributor to the Wall Street Journal and other mainstream business publications. As a dedicated teacher, I’ve helped create and lead the first student-managed investment fund at GMU, develop numerous degree programs like GMU's M.S. in Finance and CFA tracks, and currently serve as Director of the new Financial Planning & Wealth Management major at Mason. Outside of the classroom, I'm an avid squash player, swimmer, and devoted fan of everything that is Reno, NV.
