Luca Xianran Lin (林显然)
I am a 5th-year finance doctoral candidate at IESE Business School, University of Navarra. My research focuses on the influence of financial institutions on firm behavior. I am a CFA charterholder. Before academia, I gained professional experience as a development specialist for an NGO in Cape Town, South Africa, an internal auditor at the global headquarters of Western Union in Denver, as well as an analyst for an investment fund in China.
I will join HEC Montreal as assistant professor of finance in fall 2021.
