Kelly Shue joined Chicago Booth in 2011 as an Assistant Professor of Finance. Her research interests include social networks, executive compensation, M&A, credit markets, and corporate social responsibility. Her current research explores the extent to which financial markets underreact to “no news,” i.e., the pure passage of time. Her work on executive social networks was awarded the 2012 Wharton School-WRDS Award for Best Empirical Finance Paper.

Shue earned her PhD in Economics and her A.B. in Applied Mathematics (summa cum laude) from Harvard University. Prior to her doctoral studies, Shue worked as an analyst at Weiss Asset Management.
