My name is Travis Davidson and I am an Associate Professor in the Finance Department at Ohio University.  I have taught at Ohio University since obtaining my PhD in Finance from Oklahoma State University in 2012.  I also earned an MS in Quantitative Financial Economics from Oklahoma State University and a bachelor’s degree in MIS with a minor in Accounting from Southern Illinois University.  I have experience teaching a variety of courses including Corporate Finance, Bank Management, Risk and Insurance, and Markets and Institutions.  My primary area of research is banks, but I am also interested in studying other financial institutions, corporate governance, and a variety of other financial topics.  I have published peer-reviewed research on the Federal Home Loan Bank, bank-owned life insurance, deposit insurance, board of directors of business, corporate social responsibility, and tracking stocks.

In my free time I enjoy spending as much time as possible with my family.  My hobbies include outdoor activities (hiking, backpacking, canoeing, skiing, etc.), watching live music, and traveling.
