In Memoriam: Dr. William Dawes

Bill Dawes

Our esteemed colleague and Emeritus Associate Professor of Economics, William S. Dawes (Bill) passed away on May 1st, 2023. Bill was a faculty member in our department from 1969 until 2016 when he retired.  He then held a Toll Professorship for three years. To our community, he was a colleague, a mentor, a teacher, and a friend. 

In November of 2010 an Excellence Fund was set up with his name by his alumni, The William Dawes Fund for Excellence. The proceeds of this fund are distributed to our departmental yearly awards for teaching and research excellence by our graduate students. His wife Alice asks that in-lieu of flowers, donations to the Fund that bears his name be made.

Congratulations to two of our Ph.D students Brett Indelicato and Dana Golden, who have been awarded NSF fellowships in the BIAS-NRT program!

BIAS-NRT presents students with an opportunity to engage in interdisciplinary research related to bias in institutions, humans, and data and focusing on the intersection between data science and social scientific research.

Students in the program perform research alongside members of other departments in an effort to take advantage of different perspectives. Participants also choose either the artificial intelligence or human-centered data science track and take classes in the computer science department as well as other social sciences to develop skills to combine causal inference with large-scale data analysis.
