  • Biography
    Kevin is joining Broad after 6 years at the University of Iowa. He obtained his PhD from the University of North Carolina in 2010 (where he also got his B. Sc. several years earlier), and has previously held faculty positions at Dartmouth College and the University of Waterloo. He has taught both financial accounting and tax classes in both traditional and online programs, and looks forward to teaching tax in the master’s program and a research seminar in the doctoral program at MSU. Kevin's research focuses on international tax and has been published in The Accounting Review, The Journal of Accounting and Economics, Journal of Accounting Research, and Contemporary Accounting Research. He has twice received funding from the International Tax Policy Forum, and his dissertation was chosen as the best tax dissertation by the American Taxation Association. Born and raised in Toronto, Kevin is very excited to be settling so close to the border with his wife, Robyn, and their four children. When not working, he loves to play hockey, coach his kids in sports, and ride his bike in all four seasons.
