Greta Hsu and Victor Stango Awarded Tenure as Associate Professors

Assistant Professors Greta Hsu and Victor Stango have both received tenure and will be promoted to associate professor effective this summer.

Hsu joined the School in 2004 after earning her Ph.D. in organizational behavior from Stanford University, where she also earned her M.S. in statistics and an M.A. and B.A. in sociology. Her research has examined the impact of critics’ conceptions of quality on producers’ pricing decisions in the wine industry, genre spanning in the U.S. feature film industry, and patterns in perceptions of organizational identity across organizations and organizational roles. Her recent work, “Multiple Category Membership in Markets: An Integrative Theory and Two Empirical Tests,” was published in the American Sociological Review. Hsu is associate editor Management Science and serves on the editorial review boards of Organization Science, Administrative Science Quarterly, and Academy of Management Review. She teaches courses on Organizational Structure and Strategy. “Her teaching has been well received and she has been an active contributor to the School since she arrived,” Dean Currall said in announcing Hsu’s promotion.

Returning to UC Davis where he earned his Ph.D. in economics in 1996, Stango joined the Graduate School of Management two years ago from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College where he was an associate professor. Stango has extensive experience in economic policy as a senior economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago from 2001-2003 and a continuing role as a consulting economist. He also served as a visiting senior economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in 2004. Most recently, he was named a research economist for the National Bureau of Economic Research. Stango also is an associate editor of the International Journal of Industrial Organization. He teaches the core MBA course “Markets and the Firm.”

Stango’s research interests focus on consumer and firm behavior in banking markets with an emphasis on fostering sound public policy. He has two studies co-authored with Associate Professor Jon Zinman of Dartmouth forthcoming in top-tier journals: “Fuzzy Math, Disclosure Regulation and Credit Market Outcomes: Evidence from Truth in Lending Reform,” in the Review of Financial Studies; and “Exponential Growth Bias and Household Finance,” in the Journal of Finance.

“Victor has been an extraordinarily productive researcher with global visibility and numerous publications in top journals,” Dean Currall said in announcing Stango’s promotion. In December,  Stango teamed with UC Davis economics Associate Professor Chris Knittel, on a high-profile study showing that shareholders of the publicly traded sponsors of Tiger Woods collectively lost up to $12 billion in the wake of the infidelity scandal that engulfed the world’s No. 1 golfer
