My research focuses on financial planning performance and financial therapy; more specifically, within the context of financial planning, I examine the fiduciary standard of care, investment risk tolerance, and pedagogical techniques.
I am currently invovled in three primary research projects. First, using a primary dataset, I'm investigating the implications of the fiduciary standard on the investment advice process. Second, I'm developing a research proposal (and associated grant proposal) to examine the effectiveness of different theoretically-based financial counseling intervention models. Third, I recently co-authored a grant proposal to develop and implement evaluation for the financial education programming in the U.S. Army and U.S. Navy.
