SFU economist Arthur Robson has become only the second faculty member in the university’s history to be inducted as a Fellow of the prestigious Econometric Society, and one of only 10 Canadians afforded the honour.

He joins economics professor emeritus, Richard Lipsey, who was made a Fellow in 1972.

The 550-fellow society, which includes 25 Nobel Prize winners, is an international organization dedicated to advancing economic theory as it is conveyed through statistics and mathematics. It is the most prestigious learned society in the field of economics.

Robson is a Canada Research Chair in economic theory and evolution at SFU. His research has contributed greatly to theoretical understanding of the biological underpinnings of human economic behaviour.

A widely published and influential game theorist, Robson has sought to determine how evolution influences the strategies that humans employ over time, under uncertainty, and in interactions with each other.
