Che-Lin Su

It is with great sadness that we write this news.  After a brief battle with an aggressive cancer, Che-Lin Su succumbed on Friday surrounded by his family.  Che-Lin was an Associate Professor of Operations Management at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.  He was a large part of the Institute for Computational Economics over the last 8 years and was a pioneer in using constrained optimization for structural estimation. He has influenced many through his own impressive research and through the classes and lectures he has given to eager scholars anxious to learn from him.  He was always cheerful and remained upbeat to the end.  Our community has lost a promising young scholar, a wonderful colleague, and a great friend.  Che-Lin is survived by his wife Bella, his mother and father, and his sister and brother.

His colleagues and friends
