From: Dave Christy, Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs
I am pleased to announce the selection of Professor Lin Peng as the recipient of the Krell Chair in Finance. The Krell Chair is made possible due to a gift of David Krell, a 1971 MBA alumnus of Baruch College and a founder and chairman of International Securities Exchange, LLC.
Lin Peng is a Professor of Finance and PhD Program Coordinator in the Department of Economics and Finance in the Zicklin School of Business. She has taught investment analysis, fixed income analysis, market microstructure, and financial market frictions at the undergraduate, MBA, and doctoral levels. Professor Peng’s diverse research interest covers the area of asset pricing, behavioral finance, market microstructure, and corporate governance. She has examined optimal executive compensation design with price manipulation, the effects of investors’ limited attention on asset prices, the role of liquidity and liquidity shocks, and the impact of market structure and the role of financial intermediaries on price efficiency and liquidity. Her paper on executive compensation and earnings manipulation was published as the lead article by Journal of Finance. Her article on liquidity shocks and market reactions won the Chinese Finance Association Best Paper Award. She has received numerous Wasserman and PSC research awards at Baruch, including a Eugene M. Lang junior faculty research fellowship.
Professor Peng earned a master’s degree in biology from Wesleyan University, and a doctorate in Finance from Duke University. The Krell Chair is awarded for five years, and is renewable.
