Nuffield College is delighted to announce that Professor Frank Windmeijer, Nuffield Fellow and Professorial Research Fellow in the Department of Statistics, has been elected a Fellow of the British Academy, in recognition of his distinguished contributions to statistics research.
Frank specialises in micro-econometrics and causal inference, and his methods are applied across many fields, including epidemiology and biostatistics. Before coming to Nuffield, he served as Professor of Econometrics at the University of Bristol for 14 years. He was also the Co-Director of the Centre for Microdata Methods and Practice, an organisation that brings together economists and social scientists from around the world for conferences, courses and symposia.
Frank says of this new accolade: ‘It is a great honour to be nominated to the British Academy and to join many esteemed colleagues and friends to contribute to the great work the Academy does.’
British Academy Fellowships are given exclusively to academics who have ‘attained distinction in any of the branches of study which it is the object of the Academy to promote’ – namely the social sciences and the humanities. Each year the British Academy chooses a maximum of 52 Fellows from across the humanities and social sciences in the UK, and this year nearly a quarter of those chosen are from the University of Oxford.
