Biography

Dr. Delaney joined Georgia Gwinnett College in 2012 as an assistant professor of economics. He teaches Microeconomics and Business Statistics. He has conducted research on individual decision-making over risky prospects, normative messaging and pollution, as well as the level of state and local government expenditures required to provide adequate services.

Delaney earned his Ph.D. from Georgia State University in 2010 and taught at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock from 2010 to 2012, where he discovered and developed his passion for teaching. Before earning his Ph.D., Delaney earned a B.A. in English literature from Pennsylvania State University, after beginning his college career studying computer science.

His confidence in his students and his desire to see them succeed have led Delaney to introduce novel teaching techniques and technologies, including a video lecture series on business statistics, regular inclusion of news and current events, and experimentation with different class administration methods.

He grew up in eastern Pennsylvania, and moved to Baltimore before heading to Atlanta for graduate school. He has lived in the Atlanta area from 2005-2010 and again since 2012 with his wife, Cheryl, and their three children, who are really growing up very quickly indeed.
