Sir Christopher Pissarides

Winner of the 2010 Nobel Prize for Economics

Sir Christopher Pissarides holds the Regius Chair of Economics at the London School of Economics and the Chair of European Studies at the University of Cyprus. He specialises in the economics of labour markets, economic growth and structural change, especially as they relate to market frictions, where his work has been especially influential. In the last decade he has worked extensively on the employment implications of automation and artificial intelligence and on the emergence of China as a global economic power. He has written extensively in professional journals, magazines and the press and his book Equilibrium Unemployment Theory is an influential reference in the economics of unemployment that has been translated into many languages.

In 2010 Sir Christopher was awarded the Nobel Prize for his work on the labour market, sharing it with Dale Mortensen of Northwestern University and Peter Diamond of MIT, and in 2005 he became the first European economist to win the IZA Prize in Labor Economics, sharing it again with his collaborator Dale Mortensen. He has since been honoured with several other awards, Prizes and Society fellowships, including lifetime fellowships of the American Economic Association, the British Academy, the European Academy and the Academy of Athens. He served as President of the European Economic Association in 2011.

In 2011 he received the Grand Cross of the Republic of Cyprus in 2011, the highest honour of the Republic, becoming also an honorary citizen of his birthplace Nicosia. He was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 2013.
