Areas of Expertise

There should be two research streams evident in my publication record. The first research area concerns financial services, which is loosely defined as the linkage between financial theory and management practice. It is a difficult process to balance between organizational efficiency and effectiveness, but it is a critical concern for long-term organizational survival. Many of my articles report on isolated practices to inform readers of best demonstrated practices. My second research stream is one that is common to all academics and concerns instructional effectiveness.
