“We are proud to count Professor Carroll among its new fellows and extend our heartiest congratulations to Gabriel on this accomplishment.”

Carroll, whose research is in microeconomic theory with an interest in robustness and mechanism design, received the honour Oct. 10.

“The Econometric Society plays an essential role in the academic economics profession and serves every one of us. To be named a Fellow of the society is certainly an honour,” Carroll says, adding he hopes the award will help the department continue to hire talented researchers and attract strong students.

“U of T Economics is a diverse, energetic, and collegial group of scholars, and I hope I can do my small part to add to our international visibility.”
