Economics Group

Nuffield College has by far the largest number of economists (researchers and graduate students) of any college in Oxford. The Economics Group at Nuffield thus lies at the heart of Economics in Oxford. Six of the 11 University chairs are located at Nuffield. Three Nobel Prize winners in Economics are former permanent Fellows: John Hicks, James Mirrlees, and Amartya Sen. Among the current faculty are ten Fellows of the Econometric Society and eight Fellows of the British Academy.
Economists at Nuffield work on a wide range of subjects, both applied and theoretical.  While the Nuffield faculty has broad interests, it has particular strengths in microeconomic theory (ranging from the theory of games and information economics through to the design of auctions) and in econometrics (ranging from time series macroeconometrics and financial econometrics through to applied microeconometrics). 
A number of Nuffield Economics fellows act or have acted as advisors and consultants to a diverse range of institutions, and Fellows forge close links between academic research and policy-making. These external links help to inform and stimulate work at the frontier of economic research.
