Senior finance and economics major, Kendra Rasner has had her Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) proposal accepted! Kendra’s project is entitled, “The Joint Effects of Sentiment and Investor Attention: An Investigation on Market Indices”. The funding was competitive with a record of 64 SURF proposals submitted! Kendra will work throughout the summer with faculty mentor, Dr. Heather Knewtson.
A few words from Kendra:
“When Dr. Knewtson first mentioned the possibility of doing research over the summer I was beyond excited. That same week I began reading, researching, and writing my proposal. Just last week I received an email notifying me that my proposal had been selected for the funding and I had to reread the email because I couldn’t believe it. I will spend a majority of my summer in Houghton taking a few classes and spending the rest of my time researching the joint effects of sentiment and investor attention on market indices. Building on previous financial models I hope to further analyze and increase the overall understanding of investor sentiment and attention as pricing factors. In order to achieve my research goals I anticipate I will spend many of my summer hours in the APMP lab and I couldn’t be more excited about it!”
