Professor Susana Mourato appointed as Pro-Director (Research)
LSE is delighted to announce that Professor Susana Mourato has been appointed as Pro-Director (Research), effective from September 2021.
Susana commented: “I am hugely honoured and excited to be taking on the Pro-Director Research role from September 2021. These are very challenging times for researchers and for the social sciences. Now, more than ever, LSE has a pivotal role in shaping the post-Brexit and post-COVID worlds, to name the two most obvious recent examples of the rapidly changing environment for research that we find ourselves in.
I look forward to working closely with the whole LSE community, to support and facilitate outstanding research, and seek opportunities to enhance the impact and visibility as well as the social value of our research, in order to secure LSE’s place as the world’s leading institution for the social sciences”.
