2019 Whitebox Advisors Graduate Students Named

Five Yale SOM students have been selected by faculty members involved with the Behavioral Finance Initiative and awarded a Whitebox Advisors Doctoral Fellowship for the 2018-2019 academic year.

The five students are current PhD students: Elizabeth Friedman, Ryan Hauser, Avner Langut, Ben Matthies, and Chen Wang.

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.

The upcoming Whitebox Advisors Graduate Student Conference 2019 will be held on Friday,  May 10, 2019 at the Yale School of Management.  Click here for conference details.
