Adrien Auclert named a 2022 Sloan Research Fellow
SIEPR Faculty Fellow Adrien Auclert is among five Stanford faculty members who have been named 2022 Sloan Research Fellows.
The Sloan Research Fellowships program recognizes “researchers whose creativity, innovation and research accomplishments make them stand out as the next generation of scientific leaders,” according to the press release issued by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. Since the first Sloan Research Fellowships were awarded in 1955, 237 faculty from Stanford have received this award.
The five Stanford recipients this year are among 118 U.S. and Canadian researchers who will receive a two-year, $75,000 fellowship to be used as they wish to further their research.
Auclert is an assistant professor of economics in the School of Humanities and Sciences. His research focuses on inequality, consumption, monetary and fiscal policy, as well as international economics. His recent work explores the redistributive effects of monetary policy and how inequality affects the macroeconomy.
He joins a slate of scholars at SIEPR who have been named Sloan Research Fellows, including in the past decade: Isaac Sorkin in 2021; Rebecca Diamond and Melanie Morten in 2019; Alessandra Voena in 2017; Neale Mahoney in 2016; Heidi Williams in 2015; and Ran Abramitzky and Pascaline Dupas in 2012.
The other Stanford recipients for 2022 are:
- Dan Congreve, assistant professor of electrical engineering
- Scott Linderman, assistant professor of statistics and member of Stanford Bio-X, the Wu Tsai Human Performance Alliance and the Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute
- Dorsa Sadigh, assistant professor of computer science and of electrical engineering, faculty affiliate of the Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence (HAI) and member of the Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute
- Matei Zaharia, assistant professor of computer science
Open to scholars in seven scientific and technical fields – chemistry, computer science, Earth system science, economics, mathematics, neuroscience and physics – the Sloan Research Fellowships are awarded in close coordination with the scientific community.
Candidates must be nominated by their fellow scientists, and winning fellows are selected by an independent panel of senior scholars in their field on the basis of each candidate’s research accomplishments, creativity and potential to become a leader in his or her field.
