Professor Ibañez Colomo

with 7 comments


Barriers to academic promotion are lower than we thought… The London School of Economics has now officially announced that Pablo will be a full Professor as of the 1st of August. 

This is big and excellent news and it could not be more deserved.  I have said before that he is the prime academic of his generation, but that is an understatement.

Since this may be my last chance to justify a eulogy (from today on I will keep running jokes on him), let me just underline how extremely unlikely it is for someone to combine that kind of brain power (and freak memory that I enjoy showcasing at dinners), curiosity, hard-working nature, passion for a discipline and bullet-proof ethics. On top of that he is one of the most genuinely good people I know.

It’s a luxury to have him here and to learn from him everyday. His co-blogger could not be more proud.


P.S. Forget about all the above. I’m just trying to sugar coat him to see if that way he can go back to writing more frequently…
