MANAGERIAL ECONOMICS & DECISION SCIENCES
Assistant Professor of Managerial Economics & Decision Sciences

Print Overview

Dylan started professionally in the field of investment management. After a number of years at Morgan Stanley and then Wells Fargo, Dylan decided to start his own private wealth management firm, which still operates today. All the while, Dylan became increasingly interested and involved in investment research. He soon started investigating Socially Responsible Investing, intrigued by the challenge of integrating financial and ethical choices. This led to his desire to acquire greater tools for such analysis, which soon meant completing a PhD program at UC Berkeley. Through his process of becoming an economist Dylan became interested in the question of how to integrate financial and ethical choices more generally beyond simply investment decisions. Now at Kellogg, he researches and teaches in this growing field more generally dubbed Business & Society.
