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.
The Society warmly congratulates Darrell Duffie, Jun Pan and Ken Singleton for obtaining the 4th Stephen A. Ross Prize for their 2000 Econometrica article, "Transform Analysis and Asset Pricing for Affine Jump-Diffusions".
