Gosnell Prize Winner

Congratulations to the 2007 Gosnell Prize winners - Harvard's very own Alberto Abadie, Alexis Diamond, and Jens Hainmueller! They won for their paper "Synthetic Control Methods for Comparative Case Studies: Estimating the Effect of California's Tobacco Control Program", which was presented at this year's MPSA conference in Chicago. We saw an earlier version of the paper this past semester at the Applied Stats workshop, and I have to say, the award is well deserved. The Gosnell Prize is awarded to the best paper presented at any political science conference in the preceding year. Alexis is a two-time recipient, having shared the award with Jas Sekhon in 2005 for their paper on genetic matching.
