I joined the faculty of Dartmouth in 1994. My early scholarly work covered a range of topics, including pensions, saving, taxation, portfolio choice, and executive compensation. My teaching, and some of my more recent scholarship, has expanded to include other topics in finance, public policy, and social entrepreneurship.
