    GSB professor Judith Chevalier receives first Bennett Research Prize

    The American Economic Association Committee on the Status of Women in the Economics Profession has given the first Elaine Bennett Research Prize to Judith Chevalier, Associate Professor of Economics in the University’s Graduate School of Business. The prize was presented Sunday, Jan. 3, in New York.

    Following the ceremony, Chevalier gave a presentation on “Empirical Investigations of the Effects of Contracts on Economic Behavior.”

    The Elaine Bennett Research Prize will be given every two years to recognize, support and encourage outstanding contributions by young women in the economics profession. The prize is made possible by contributions from William Zame and others in memory of Elaine Bennett, who made significant contributions to economic theory and experimental economics.

    Chevalier graduated summa cum laude from Yale in 1989 and received her Ph.D. in 1993 from MIT. She is a fellow of the National Bureau of Economic Research and of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. Chevalier has made important contributions to empirical research at the interface of industrial organization and corporate finance.
