Three NYU faculty named to the National Academy of Sciences

The National Academy of Sciences has elected three members of New York University's faculty to its ranks: Stern School of Business Professor Robert Engle; Ruth Lehmann, a professor at NYU School of Medicine's Skirball Institute of Biomolecular Medicine; and Margaret Wright, chair of NYU's computer science department. There are now 25 NYU faculty who are members of NAS.

Engle, who holds the Michael Armellino Professorship in the Management of Financial Services, was awarded the 2003 Nobel Prize in Economics for methods of analyzing economic time series with time-varying volatility (ARCH). Engle shared the prize with Clive W. J. Granger of the University of California at San Diego. Engle has published more than 100 academic papers and three books. His interest in financial econometrics covers equities, interest rates, exchange rates, and options. Engle was an assistant professor at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) from 1969-74. He moved to the University of California, San Diego in 1975, becoming an associate professor and then a full professor in 1977. He was chair of the Department of Economics from 1990 to 1994. He now lectures widely to both academic and practitioner audiences. He is a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the Econometric Society, the American Finance Association, and the American Statistical Association. Engle received a B.A. in physics from Williams College as well as a masters degree in physics and a Ph.D. in economics, both from Cornell University.

Ruth Lehmann, Ph.D., a leader in the field of developmental genetics, is the Julius Raynes Professor of Developmental Genetics and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator. She is also director of the new Helen & Martin S. Kimmel Center for Stem Cell Biology and director of the Developmental Genetics Program at the Sackler Institute of Graduate Biomedical Sciences at the School of Medicine. Lehmann is widely known for her pioneering work on germ cell
