“It is an honor to join the distinguished academics who have previously been professors-in-residence at IBFD. I’m looking forward to pursuing several projects where the unparalleled resources of IBFD – which has both country and subject matter experts and, of course, the fabulous library – will allow me to make real progress this year!”, said Prof. Brown.
Prof. Brown’s primary fields of expertise are in the interpretation of tax treaties, the international taxation of financial institutions and financial products and cross-border taxation of pensions and pension funds.
