She is the author of Differences of Opinion in Financial Markets: The Implications for Asset Returns (VDM Verlag Dr. Müller, 2009). She has presented her research at some of the world’s top business schools, including Carnegie Mellon University, the London Business School, the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business, Erasmus University, Harvard Business School and the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University. She has also presented her research to the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve Bank, and to investment professionals at CalPERS and CalSTRS, the nation’s two largest public pension funds.

Scherbina received her Ph.D. in finance from the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University, where she also taught a course on corporate finance. She has a BS in management information from Polytechnic University in New York. Scherbina joined the UC Davis Graduate School of Management in 2007 from Harvard Business School where she taught MBA courses in finance.
