Assistant Professors Zsolt Katona and Panos Patatoukas have been awarded Schwabacher Fellowships by the Haas Executive Committee in recognition of their research and teaching.
The fellowship is the highest honor that Haas bestows upon assistant professors. It consists of a small unrestricted cash award, a research grant, and a modest instructional point credit.
"Both Zsolt and Panos are publishing and teaching well, and we look forward to more of their achievements,” says Associate Dean Andrew Rose.
Katona, a member of the Haas Marketing Group, joined the Haas School in 2008. His research focuses on online marketing, search advertising, network economics, and social networks. Katona taught Social Media, Managing Internet and Digital Media Products, and Marketing Strategy in the fall. He earned a PhD in management from INSEAD in France as well as a PhD in computer science and master's of science in mathematics from Eotvos Lorand University in Hungary.
Patatoukas joined the faculty's Accounting Group in 2010 and teaches Information Analysis. His research focuses on supply-chain relationships and financial statement analysis and reporting, including the impact of earnings news on stock market prices. Patatoukas received his master's degree and PhD in accounting and finance from Yale and earned his undergraduate degree in accounting and finance from the Athens University of Economics and Business.
