2017 Whitebox Advisors Graduate Students Named

Seven Yale SOM students have been selected by faculty members involved with the Behavioral Finance Initiative and awarded a Whitebox Advisors Doctoral Fellowship for the 2016-2017 academic year.

January 23, 2017

The seven students are current PhD students: Leila Bengali, Liz Friedman, Avner Langut, Sarah Levis, Ben Matthies, Rosanna Smith, and Yifan Zhu.

The students are currently working on coordinating the annual Whitebox Advisors Graduate Student Conference which draws top doctoral students from around the world to present their research in the fields of Behavioral Economics, Behavioral Finance, and Behavioral Marketing.  The goal of the conference is to foster an environment to promote interaction amongst doctoral student researchers, and to provide feedback for students presenting their work in these fields.

The research efforts in these fields have been helped immeasurably by the generous support of Andrew Redleaf of Whitebox Advisors.
