Why Teach At Rice
"Beyond providing an academically stimulating environment, Rice Business has created a supportive atmosphere where I am free to pursue my research projects, share my ideas with colleagues and students, and engage with the business community."
"Borrowing money can improve a person’s life in many ways, whether it’s being used to fund an education, start a business or buy a house. But there are also concerns about predatory lending and the implications for financial stability. This has led to regulations that restrict how much money people can borrow. I hope my research will be useful for evaluating and improving these policies."
