Sangwon Suh Receives Two Awards on the Same Day

June 16 was a great day for Bren assistant professor Sangwon Suh, who received two professional awards that day.

Dr. Suh was awarded the Leontief Memorial Prize from the International Input-Output Association (IIOA) during the annual meeting, held June 16 in Washington D.C. The prize is awarded to a scholar under 40, based on the quality of papers submitted to the IIOA.

The IIOA was established in 1988 by the Nobel laureate and input-output pioneer Wassily Leontief, and the prize was created in his honor to advance knowledge in the field of input-output analysis, including improvements in basic data, theoretical insights and modeling, and applications of input-output techniques.

On the same day, Dr. Suh also received the IIOA's Sir Richard Stone Prize . The Sir Richard Stone prize is awarded to the best paper published in economic systems research in the past two years. Dr. Suh received the award for the paper "Improving the Completeness of Product Carbon Footprints Using a Global Input-Output Model," which he co-wrote with five other authors . It was published in the Economic Systems Research, the journal of the IIOA, in 2009.

Both prizes carry a $1,000 cash award.

Dr. Suh also received the Outstanding Teacher Award, as voted by the Bren School master's Class of 2011, at the Bren commencement exercises on June 10.

Congratulations to Dr. Suh on all fronts!
