Published Research

Below are links to my finance and economics academic publications. I have classified the articles based on where the journal is listed in the ABS Journal List  (the journal list we use here at WVU in the Economics and Finance Departments). I usually write my programs for the empirical analysis of my papers in RATS, SAS, R, or MATLAB. If you would like the data and code for a specific paper, shoot me an email and I’ll be glad to share it.
