Founded in 1930, the Econometric Society is an International Society for the Advancement of Economic Theory in its Relation to Statistics and Mathematics. The Econometric Society publishes Econometrica, one of the coveted „top 5“ journals in economics, as well as two other highly regarded journals. Fellows represent the highest authority of the Society. There are currently more than 700 elected Fellows worldwide, including many Nobel Prize winners. Only 14 Fellows (out of which 7 are emeritus professors) are based in Germany. There are now two Fellows of the Econometric Society engaged in research at the University of Mannheim: Michèle Tertilt and Volker Nocke.
Prior to joining the University of Mannheim, Volker Nocke has held full-time faculty positions at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), and the Universities of Oxford and Pennsylvania. He has broad research interests within the fields of Industrial Organization and International Trade. Much of his recent work has been concerned with horizontal and vertical mergers, oligopoly theory, and competition policy. He has published in the leading academic journals such as Econometrica, the American Economic Review, the Journal of Political Economy, and the Review of Economic Studies. He holds a Ph.D. from the London School of Economics and an undergraduate degree (Diplom-Volkswirt) from the University of Bonn.
