Carol Propper receives CBE from the Palace for services to Social Science

Carol Propper, Professor of Economics of Public Policy at the University, has received her CBE for her services to social science.

The accolade, which was awarded in the Queen's Birthday Honours in June, recognises Professor Propper’s research into public economics and economics of health care as well as her work with colleagues from other social science and medical disciplines.

Professor Propper holds a joint appointment with the Business School at Imperial College London. She has also been a Council Member of the Economics and Social Research Council and of the Royal Economic Society, as well as a former co-director of the Centre for Social Exclusion at the LSE.

Professor Eric Thomas, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Bristol, said: ‘Professor Propper has achieved great distinction in her field and I’m delighted that she has received this recognition.’
