Çelim Yıldızhan, Research & Ideas

About Me

My name is Çelim Yıldızhan and I’m an Assistant Professor of Finance at the Terry College of Business, at the University of Georgia. My research is in the intersection of empirical finance and archival accounting research.

I earned my PhD in finance at the University of Michigan and my thesis focused on better understanding the pricing of default risk in equity markets and since then I have expanded into studying supplier-customer links, innate business complexity, managerial entrenchment and relative performance evaluation.
