I am Kyre Lahtinen, an assistant professor of finance at the University of South Alabama, where I am the faculty advisor to the Jaguar Investment Fund, our student managed investment fund.

I have research interests in behavioral finance, empirical asset pricing, asymmetric investor information, investor communication, and financial advising. My teaching interests include investments, financial markets and institutions, and financial management. In June of 2013 I was awarded the FSU College of Business Outstanding Doctoral Student Teaching Award. This is a competitive award that is only granted to three students each year.

Although I grew up in Florida, I lived abroad in Brazil for two years and I am fluent in Portuguese. I enjoy reading and following international economic events, especially those that involve the BRIC countries. My hobbies include technology, sports, and traveling.

I have a doctorate and a master’s degree from Florida State University in finance. Go NOLES!
