Professor Andrew Oswald named as Clarivate Citation Laureate 2022Thursday 22 Sep 2022
CAGE Senior Research Fellow, Andrew Oswald receives the prestigious honour of Citation Laureate 2022 from Clarivate Plc.
The award honours Andrew Oswald ‘for pioneering contributions to the economics of happiness and subjective wellbeing.’
The citation laureate award recognises exceptional citation records within the Web of Science™ (owned by Clarivate) and demonstrates research influence comparable to that of Nobel Prize recipients. More than 60 of the laureates named over the last 20 years have gone on eventually to win the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, Physics, Chemistry, and Economics. This year, 2022, a total of 21 recipients have been honoured as Citation Laureates across the 4 disciplines.
Andrew Oswald is one of three recipients awarded for work on the economics of wellbeing (the others are Richard Easterlin of the University of Southern California and Richard Layard of the London School of Economics).
Andrew Oswald said:
“It's nice to receive this, most especially alongside my international colleague Richard Easterlin, who is now in his nineties and who helped begin the field in the 1970s. I am also pleased for Warwick and the Economics Department: for some decades they have allowed me to do often-unconventional types of research."
Oswald is Professor of Economics and Behavioural Science at the University of Warwick and a Senior Research Fellow at the CAGE Research Centre. He joined Warwick from LSE in 1996, and is currently a member of the board of reviewing editors of the journal Science.
Andrew’s recent research has included work on the empirical study of job satisfaction, human happiness, mental health, pain and the business cycle, labour productivity, and climate change.
