Staff Spotlight – Daniel Benton

Dan is a Research Support Specialist in the Pediatric Finance Administration office.

My wife is a Professor of Management and Organizations, emerita in the Tippie College of Business. She continues to teach in the Hong Kong and Italy MBA programs. Our son lives in San Diego and just got his Certified Financial Planner license. My parents were UI professors – I am a university brat.

I was a composer and now a ballet historian/musicologist. I occasionally teach at the UI Senior College and Iowa City Senior Center. In March 19 I will teach “Onegin – from novel-in-verse to opera to ballet” at UI Senior College.

I am currently doing my dream job – I am part time (returned from retirement) looking after Drs. McCray/Sinn/Bassuk/Mathews/Murray grants and finances.

The most fascinating place I’ve ever been is Stockholm, Sweden. The Scandinavians have many things figure out.
