Toni whited  Today the Simon School will formally install Toni Whited as the inaugural Michael and Diane Jones Professor of Finance.  This professorship supports a faculty member whose work successfully exemplifies the Simon School mission.  Toni is an expert in finance, macroeconomics and econometrics and comes to us from the Wisconsin School of Business at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.  She earned a B.A. from the University of Oregon, majoring in French literature and economics, and a Ph.D. from Princeton University in economics, working with Ben Bernanke. 

Toni worked at the Federal Reserve Board and was on the faculty at the University of Pennsylvania, Northwestern University, the University of Michigan, and the University of Iowa, before joining the University of Wisconsin in 2003.  She has taught at the undergraduate, M.B.A., and Ph.D. levels in her former positions.  Her research deals primarily with the effects of financial markets on firm capital budgeting decisions.  She has also conducted research in the areas of theoretical econometrics, asset pricing, macroeconomics, and corporate debt policy.  She serves on the editorial board of the Journal of Financial Economics and the Journal of Macroeconomics and was one of the co-editors of Finance Research Letters.

We look forward to seeing Toni on the faculty in a teaching and research capacity in fall 2009!
