The Department of Finance has no less than two researchers receiving prizes from the Jorck Foundation this year.

Professor Steffen Andersen has won one of the two research grants for his work in economics and finance. Steffen Andersen’s method is to observe behavior and choices in individuals or markets through both designed field experiments and natural experiments and he has built up a large international network of collaboration partners in the areas of experimental, behavioral and household economy and finance through his research stays at top universities like Stanford University and the University of Chicago.

Another prize went to FRIC PhD student Niels Joachim Gormsen who is awarded a traveling scholarship for his upcoming research stay at Harvard University. Niels Joachim will have the exclusive honor of visiting Professor John Y. Campbell, a leading researcher at the Harvard Department of Economics.

The prizes will be presented by the Chairman of the Jorck Foundation, Poul Søgaard, President of the Danish Supreme Court, on Monday 14 December at 15:00 at the Supreme Court. More information about the Jorck Foundation can be found in the link above.
