Professor Susan McVie elected fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences
Professor Susan McVie has been awarded a fellowship of the Academy of Social Sciences (FAcSS) for her contribution to social science.
The Academy of Social Sciences has named 73 leading UK social scientists to a new cohort of fellows for 2020. All have been elected for their outstanding contributions to research, and for their application of social science to policy, education, society and the economy.
Professor McVie is chair of quantitative criminology at Edinburgh Law School whose research on youth crime and juvenile justice has been influential in a variety of areas of policy and practice.
She also played a major role in building capacity in advanced quantitative methods across the social sciences through her work with the Economic and Social Research Council and her leadership of the Applied Quantitative Methods Network.
Professor Roger Goodman, president of the Academy of Social Sciences, said: “We are extremely proud to welcome 73 new Fellows to the Academy who are so highly accomplished and driving social and economic transformation across societies.
“They have been selected following a robust review by their peers and have been recognised for the excellence of their work and its applications in academia, business and the public sector.”
