Çelim Yıldızhan, Research & Ideas

About Me

My name is Çelim Yıldızhan. I earned my PhD in finance at the University of Michigan in 2011 and my thesis focused on better understanding the pricing of default risk in equity markets. Since then I have broadened my interests to study supplier-customer links, impact of organizational complexity on pricing, household finance, managerial entrenchment and relative performance evaluation. I served as an Assistant Professor of Finance at the Terry College of Business at the University of Georgia from 2011 to 2019. I joined Koç University in İstanbul, Turkey starting December 2019 as an Assistant Professor of Accounting and Finance.
