The Roe Term Fellowship was established in June of this year to support PhD level students annually, over a five-year period. This fellowship was established by Jeff Roe and his wife, Perri. Jeff is an alumnus of the department, a member of our alumni Visiting Committee, and was honored at the 2018 Department of Economics Graduation Celebration as our Distinguished Alumnus.
The Department of Economics is delighted to announce that Xu Tan has been promoted to Associate Professor, with tenure. Tan was hired by the Department of Economics as an Assistant Professor in 2013. She conducted her graduate studies at Stanford University, where she received her Ph.D. in Economics in 2013, and MS in Financial Mathematics in 2011. Prior to that, she attended Peking University where she received a BS in both Economics and Mathematics in 2007.
Congratulations to senior Eileen Drolet, who has been selected as a 2020 Bonderman Fellow! This fellowship provides Eileen and her cohort of fellows the opportunity to travel the world independently for eight months in order to come to know the world in new ways. This year’s fellows have accepted the honor with the caveat that their travel will not take place until it is safe enough to do so, given the global covid-19 pandemic.
