Tat Chan, an expert on economics and marketing, was installed as the Philip L. Siteman Professor of Marketing at Olin Business School at Washington University in St. Louis during a recent ceremony.

Chan has been teaching at the business school for more than 20 years. His research examines various types of consumer and firm behaviors, offline and online, using advanced empirical methods. He also currently serves as a senior editor at Marketing Science, a top journal in marketing.

The professorship was established in 1985 by Washington University emeritus trustee Alvin J. Siteman and his wife, Ruth, in memory of Philip L. Siteman, Alvin’s late father and the founder of Site Oil Co.

Anjan Thakor, dean of Olin Business School and the John E. Simon Professor of Finance, presided over the installation ceremony, which took place at the Charles F. Knight Executive Education and Conference Center. Following the installation, Chan delivered an address, “Information Effects in the Digital Age.”
