Judith A. Chevalier

William S. Beinecke Professor of Finance and Economics

Professor Judy Chevalier

Professor Chevalier's research is in the areas of both finance and industrial organization. Some of her recent research examines the interaction between customer reviews and firm strategy, consumer foresight in markets for durable goods, the impact of state regulations in the market for funeral products and services, and the taste for leisure as a determinant of occupational choice. She has written a series of papers on the economics of electronic commerce, the interaction between firm capital structure and product market competition, price seasonality and cyclicality, and tests of models of agency relationships and career concerns, and firm diversification. She is a former co-editor of the American Economic Review and of the Rand Journal of Economics.
