Bob attended Duke University, the University of Georgia, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He received a Ph.D. in philosophy in 1974 and a Ph.D. in finance in 1978 from the University of North Carolina. Over 17 years, Bob was a professor of finance at the University of Florida, Emory University, and the University of Miami. During this time, he published more than 50 academic research articles and more than 20 books.
While a finance professor, Bob pursued his interest in photography as a busy schedule of teaching, research, writing, and consulting would allow. In 1995, Bob left academics to devote more attention to fine art photography, particulary to pursue large format black and white photography using traditional technology.
Now, while continuing to develop his portfolio of black and white Images. Bob has undertaken two new initiatives. He is exploring the world of digital color photography and has taken a position with the business school of Loyola University Chicago, where he is a Professor of Finance and holds the Considine Chair in Applied Ethics. Two of his recent books are The Financial Crisis of Our Time and Too Much Is Not Enough: Incentives in Executive Compensation, both published by Oxford University Press and both chosen to appear in the Survey and Synthesis series of the Financial Management Association. His latest book, The Natural Gas Revolution: At the Pivot of the World's Energy Future is published by Pearson/Financial Times Press. Currently Bob is working on his next book, which will address the issue of sovereign debt. Please visit my academic and professional website:
