Dr. David Guo has been named Wichita State’s Regents Distinguished Professor of Public Finance by the Kansas Board of Regents.
The purpose of the Regents Distinguished Professor program is to attract and retain established scholars in Kansas whose research projects augment the state’s economic and industrial development.
“I am enthusiastic about this opportunity to help Kansas families, support Kansas businesses and advance economic prosperity,” said Guo. “I pledge to be a good steward of the prestigious position to bridge academics and practice and make a meaningful impact in the real world.”
Guo previously held an associate professor position at Florida International University, where he researched and taught courses on public budgeting and finance. He joined the Hugo Wall School of Public Affairs in August.
“I am extremely pleased that Dr. Guo has been named Regents Professor,” Dr. Andrew Hippisley, dean of Fairmount College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, said. “As an expert in public finance, an experienced community connector, and a champion of applied learning and applied research, he will have a significant impact on the region, the state and beyond.”
