My Resume




I joined the Owen School (Vanderbilt University) in 1990 after completing a Ph.D. at University of California (Berkeley). My previous degrees are from Indiana University, (MA) and the University of Kentucky (BS).

I have held short-term appointments with the International Monetary Fund, Johann Wolfgang Goethe University, the Bank of France, the Bank of Japan, the Hong Kong Institute for Monetary Research, and the Reserve Bank of South Africa. I have also worked in economic expert witness consulting and for the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco.

At Vanderbilt's Owen Graduate School of Management, I teach courses in management of risks in international business, international finance, and business in an interconnected world (aka macroeconomics).

My research interests are in the fields of international finance, international corporate finance, and macroeconomics. More specifically, the economics of exchange rates, goods and capital markets integration, Central Bank behavior, and international price parity are the core of my research. More recently, I have been studying the value and consequences of political connections - both in the U.S., and abroad.
