The Society for Experimental Finance is an organization for scientists who use controlled experiments to understand human behavior on financial markets.


We are pleased to announce that Isabel Trevino has won the 2021 Vernon L. Smith Excellence Award in Experimental Finance for her paper "Information Channels of Financial Contagion", published in the Journal of Finance (econometricsociety.org/publications/econometrica/2020/01/01/informational-channels-financial-contagion).

The award panel is impressed by the depth and scope of this study and is convinced that it makes a very important contribution to Finance research. The panel members are Elena Asparouhova (University of Utah), Michael Kirchler (University of Innsbruck), Dave Porter (Chapman University), and Utz Weitzel (VU Amsterdam and Radboud University).

The award and special recognition will be handed over officially during the conference dinner at the next Experimental Finance World Conference to be held online on June 16-18, 2021.

Congratulations Isabel!
