Doina Chichernea’s research interests are in the area of empirical asset pricing, with a special focus on striving to provide a better understanding of various sources of risk that generate patterns in returns. She studies risk-based explanations for asset pricing anomalies (instances where return variation seems to defy the basic tenet of high risk, high return). She is also interested in how institutional investors process information and how their participation in the markets influences the risk–return relationship.


Associate Professor, Director
Fritz Knoebel School of Hospitality Management

Most of the work David Corsun has published and continues to pursue is focused on the impact on students of mentoring refugee trainees; psychological empowerment; clearly identifying the bad management practices associated with firefighting in organizations; shedding light on the glass ceiling and its causes and consequences; or creating cases and materials to develop managers in the classroom. Corsun’s work links back to what drives him to learn, teach, research and serve—creating humane workplaces.

She seeks to understand the theoretical underpinnings of experiential consumption and decision-making to enhance consumer well-being.
