Øystein Daljord, 41 years old, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, June 13, 2020, in Chicago, Illinois. He received his PhD from the Stanford Graduate School of Business in 2015 and worked as an assistant professor of marketing at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business from 2015 to 2020.

Øystein dedicated his academic career to research at the intersection of economics and marketing. His passing came at a pivotal moment in his career, with a pipeline of research papers on the verge of completion and almost ready for submission to peer-reviewed journals.

"Most importantly, Øystein was a good friend," writes Jean-Pierre Dubé, the Sigmund E. Edelstone Professor of Marketing and Director of the Kilts Center for Marketing. "Personally, I will miss our evening rituals comprising outstanding food and stellar wines to complement the continuation of an intellectual debate from the office. Øystein will be missed sorely and his passing was a tremendous loss to the academic community."
