Yiran Fan

The Yiran Fan Memorial Conference

On June 9-June 10, 2023, scholars in financial economics gathered to share ongoing research in a series of alumni and student presentations as part of a commemorative event dedicated to our late colleague, Yiran Fan. Faculty announced the Yiran Fan Memorial Fellowship and presented the Yiran Fan Memorial Prize to student awardees. Conference participants hope to continue to carry the promise of Yiran's contributions forward.

During his time at Booth, Yiran was completing a doctoral degree in Financial Economics and working as a Professional Development Fellow at the Fama-Miller Center for Research in Finance.
