Arthur Snow has been named the Nicholas A. Beadles Professor of Economics in the Terry College of Business.

Snow, a faculty member in UGA’s economics department since 1986, studies microeconomic theory, public economics and the economics of information and uncertainty.

He has won best paper awards from the Journal of Risk and Insurance and The Geneva Risk and Insurance Review, among other honors.

Snow earned a doctorate and a master’s degree in economics from the University of Wisconsin and a bachelor’s degree in economics from Harvard.
