Professor Imran Rasul, Co-director of the ESRC Centre for the Microeconomic Analysis of Public Policy at IFS and Professor of Economics at University College London, has been elected a Fellow of the British Academy.
He joins a roster of 76 academics recognised today for their achievements in the humanities and social sciences.
Professor Sir David Cannadine, President of the British Academy, said:
“The British Academy has always recognised pioneering research in the humanities and social sciences, and 2019 is no exception. This year we have elected a particularly multi-skilled and versatile cohort of Fellows whose research crosses conventional academic boundaries.
“Whether it is climate conservation or the ageing society, the rise of artificial intelligence or social cohesion, our new Fellows’ wealth of expertise means the Academy is exceptionally well-placed to provide new knowledge and insights on the challenges of today. Their work has opened rich new seams of understanding and discovery, offering new perspectives on long-standing and emerging challenges alike."
