Princeton Economics Professor Kate Ho has been elected to The Econometric Society as a 2019 Fellow. The Society also recognized Princeton Economics Professor Nobuhiro Kiyotaki, who was elected to the Council’s Asia Standing Committee.
Professor Ho serves as a co-director, with Janet Currie, of Princeton’s Center for Health and Wellbeing. She is an editor at the RAND Journal of Economics and has served as co-editor at the American Economic Journal: Economic Policy and on the editorial boards of the American Economic Review, the American Economic Journal: Microeconomics and the Journal of Economic Literature. Her research focuses on the industrial organization of the medical care market. Her work has been recognized by the International Health Economics Association, the International Journal of Industrial Organization and the Journal of Applied Econometrics. Prior to her academic career she spent four years as Private Secretary (Chief of Staff) to the U.K. Minister of State for Health.
Ho joins 13 other economists newly appointed to the Society this week. Econometric Society Fellows are nominated by a committee, which this year included Liran Einav (Chair), Fumio Hayashi, Per Krussell, Ariél Pakes, Elie Tamer, Harald Uhlig, and Juuso Välimäki.
Professor Kiyotaki has been at Princeton since 2006. Prior to joining Princeton, he spent nearly ten years at the London School of Economics. He has also taught at MIT, the University of Minnesota, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Kiyotaki is considered one of the key architects of the New Keynesian Economics school of thought whose past work laid the foundation for how economists today think about business cycles. His professional honors include the 2014 Banque de France-Toulouse School of Economics Senior Prize in Monetary Economics and Finance, the 2010 Stephen A. Ross Prize in Financial Economics, the 1999 EEA Yrjo Jahnsson Award (together with John Moore), and the 1997 JEA-Nakahara Prize.
The Econometric Society is an international society for the advancement of economic theory in its relation to statistics and mathematics. In addition to regularly convening meetings and conferences around the globe, the Society publishes several journals, including Econometrica, Quantitative Economics, and Theoretical Economics.
