Dr. Velikova received her undergraduate degree from the People's Friendship University of Russia. Her M.A. in Financial Economics and Ph.D. in Applied Economics were both earned at Mississippi State University, where she worked as a research assistant, academic tutor, and instructor of economics.
She teaches economics and international business courses in Belmont University’s College of Business Administration, where she has advised members of SIFE, Students in Free Enterprise, and was involved in the creation of the IB Society, an organization for students interested in international studies, which she advises.
Her research interests include macroeconomics and monetary economics; however, her primary area of specialization is the effectiveness of deposit insurance coverage in the international banking system, including U.S. banks. An article she authored, entitled "Real Deposit Insurance Coverage at U.S. Banks," has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Business and Leadership: Research, Practice, and Teaching.
