Vaibhav Anand

(vab-huv  AH-nund)


I am an Assistant Professor at the Tobin College of Business, St. John’s University, where I hold the Robert F. Corroon Chair in the School of Risk Management. I received a Ph.D. in Risk Management and Insurance from Wisconsin School of Business, University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2022.

My broad research interests include decision-making under risk, climate risk, and reinsurance. I use empirical methods to study how people and firms make risk management decisions. My research uses large longitudinal data sets that provide rich variation across space, time, and subjects to answer research questions. My current work focuses on the implications of weather forecasts for risk management. 

In my earlier avatar, I worked for nine years in the financial services and risk management industry. My last role was the Director and Head of Risk Analytics at IFMR Capital (now Northern Arc Capital). For my professional resume, you can visit my Linkedin page.
