I am currently an associate professor of financial economics at Armstrong State University in Savannah, Georgia and a research associate for the Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET) program on Imperfect Knowledge Economics (IKE). I have several papers forthcoming in the Journal of Behavioral Finance and my research has also landed at the Journal of Economics and Finance, Econmics: E-Journal, the Journal of Economic Methdology and Economics Bulletin. My research focuses on testing the implications of macro-finance models based on IKE by investigating the relative roles and dynamics between market fundamentals, psychology, and social context in explaining price fluctuations in equity markets. I earned my doctoral degree at the University of New Hampshire. Research from my dissertation has received attention from financial press outlets such as The Economist and Bloomberg News and has been featured prominently in the book Beyond Mechanical Markets: Asset Price Swings, Risk, and the Role of the State - a finalist for the Paul Samuelson Prize. I previuosly have contributed to a column on current economic and financial events for the Savannah Morning News city paper. As an educator at the university level, I incorporate my formal training and research on the pedagogy of economics into my finance courses.
