...in the 2014 INFORMS Financial Services Section student paper competition, for work I supervised as Yang's dissertation advisor. Other finalists were from Columbia University (two students), the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and KAIST. I'm very proud of Yang for her great accomplishment. You can read more about her work in this previous post of mine.
Below is a picture of Yang with her certificate. Wishing her best of luck in the next phase of her career as a Senior Analyst at JP Morgan in New York City!
