UO Econ PhD Student Awarded Conference of State Bank Supervisors award

University of Oregon Economics PhD student Giorgi Nikolaishvili is one of three 2023 Community Banking Research Conference Emerging Scholars. The program recognizes doctoral students who are considering or working on a dissertation on a banking-related topic. 

“This year’s emerging scholars have already started to advance our understanding of important community banking topics, including how digital platforms and technological advances impact the value of banks’ deposit franchises, how community banks contribute to the transmission of monetary policy, and how the implementation of CECL can have unintended procyclical effects on loan loss provisioning,” CSBS Executive Vice President for Policy & Supervision Karen Lawson said in a press release.

The emerging scholars are invited to attend the annual Community Banking Research Conference, sponsored by CSBS, the Federal Reserve System, and the FDIC. The conference provides emerging scholar recipients with the opportunity to hear presentations and discussions on the latest community banking research and to interact with researchers, regulators and community bankers.
