Anna Scherbina is an associate professor of finance at the University of California, Davis. Prior to joining UC Davis, she was an assistant professor at the Harvard Business School. She has also worked at the Federal Reserve Board and the International Monetary Fund. Scherbina’s primary area of research is behavioral finance and asset pricing; she focuses in particular on how stock prices react to new information and on the various barriers to quick information diffusion, such as information complexity, trading costs, impediments to short selling, and the unwillingness of analysts and managers to reveal negative news. Her research covers a variety of topics, such as the analysis of why seemingly sophisticated mutual fund managers may hold on to stocks with poor prospects; how investor disagreement about firm values affects future stock returns; whether investors understand how stocks are interconnected; and what happened to real estate prices during the Great Depression. She is now working on documenting how personal attributes (such as gender, age and education) influence mutual fund managers’ career outcomes. Scherbina’s work has been published in top journals, such as the Journal of Finance, the Review of Financial Studies, the Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis, and Real Estate Economics. She has also presented her findings at major universities and academic conferences. Scherbina received her Ph.D. in finance from the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University.
