Professor Simon French named as the Ramsey Medalist for 2017 by the Decision Analysis Society
Simon French has been named as the Ramsey Medalist for 2017 by the Decision Analysis Society within INFORMS. The award is the highest award of the Decision Analysis Society and recognizes distinguished contributions to the field of decision analysis. Much of Simon's work has centered on the use of expert judgment in risk and decision analysis, particularly the aggregation of disparate opinions. After the Chernobyl Accident, he became deeply involved in the fields of risk communication and emergency management. This led to a string of papers and work focused on nuclear and food safety. More recently, he has become interested in social decision making and democracy in the internet age.
