Nottingham expert appointed Fellow by ONS

Professor Paul Mizen from the School of Economics at the University of Nottingham has been appointed a Fellow of the Office for National Statistics (ONS) Economic Experts Working Group (EEWG).

First introduced in 2016, EEWG helps ONS set its development agenda for economic statistics as well as offering expert advice to help solve the difficulties of measuring the changing economy.

This includes working on subjects where they have particular expertise. The Fellows also act as ambassadors to further the economic measurement agenda, raising its profile and importance.

Paul is one of two new Fellows who have been appointed on two-year contracts, following an open competition, running from September 2018.

Paul has been a member of the faculty in the School of Economics at Nottingham since 1992 and is currently Professor of Monetary Economics and Director of the Centre for Finance and Credit Markets.

He is a former Bank of England economist and has previously taught at the economics departments of the European University Institute, Florence and Princeton University. Paul has been a visiting scholar to the US Federal Reserve, the Deutsche Bundesbank, the European Central Bank, the Bank for International Settlements, the International Monetary Fund and a number of other central banks and universities.

Paul is the Treasurer of the Money, Macro and Finance Research Group.

Paul said on his appointment: “The Office for National Statistics is making large strides to implement the recommendations of the Bean Review of UK Economic Statistics. The initiative to appoint Fellows to participate in the drive to deliver high quality economic statistics has engaged some exceptional individuals, and I am delighted to be invited to join them.”
