Lancaster University Management School’s Professor John Boylan has been made a Fellow of the International Institute of Forecasters (IIF).
Professor Boylan from the Department of Management Science has been awarded the prestigious fellowship based on his contributions to the field of forecasting, the International Journal of Forecasting and the International Institute of Forecasters itself.
Professor Boylan joins an illustrious group of fellows, of which there are only 35 in total from all around the world. They include two Nobel Prize winners, Clive Granger and Rob Engle, and two other professors from Lancaster University, Robert Fildes and Peter Young.
Speaking of Prof Boylan’s fellowship, Professor Robert Fildes said: “John has been made a fellow for his multiple contributions to the field of forecasting, including his influential research work in intermittent demand forecasting and its link to supply chain planning, his membership of the Board of IIF directors, and most recently, his role as IIF conference chair in the 2022 Oxford Forecasting Symposium.”
Professor Boylan added: "I'm very honoured to be awarded this fellowship. It validates not only my own contributions, but also that of my collaborators, and the work of the Centre for Marketing Analytics and Forecasting at Lancaster."Back to News
