Warrington’s Flannery will visit NY Fed’s Research Department

Gainesville, Fla. – Professor Mark Flannery will be the resident scholar at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York for the 2009-10 academic year, beginning in August 2009. Flannery is the BankAmerica Eminent Scholar in Finance at the Warrington College of Business Administration.

“Working at the New York Fed’s Research Department will bring me much closer to the center of the financial crisis,” Flannery says, “and to ideas about how to resolve the crisis.”

Professor Flannery’s research interests include: government regulation of the financial sector, information content of security prices, financial management of financial institutions, and asset pricing. He is a prolific and influential scholar who has written on a wide variety of topics in banking and finance, with works published in leading journals, such as the American Economic Review, Quarterly Journal of Economics, Journal of Finance, Journal of Financial Economics, Review of Financial Studies, and the Journal of Monetary Economics. He served as an editor of the Journal of Money, Credit, and Banking and has been an associate editor at numerous other finance journals. He was a co-director of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation’s Center for Financial Research, and is incoming president of the Financial Intermediation Research Society.

Professor Flannery has been a member of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s Financial Advisory Roundtable since its inception in 2006, and was a visitor there in the fall of 2006.

Flannery says he “looks forward to applying some of the things I learn in New York when I get back to teaching. There’s no substitute for real-world examples when a professor is trying to illustrate the value of a theoretical concept to sometimes-skeptical business students.”
