Professor Isaiah Andrews has been awarded the John Bates Clark Medal for his "contributions to econometric theory and empirical practice have improved the quality, credibility, and communication of quantitative research in economics." The prize is bestowed annually upon an American economist under the age of 40 for making significant contributions to thought and knowledge in the field. He joins the rank of 7 other previous John Bates Clark Medal winners currently in the department.
