Peter Robinson was born in England in 1947. In 1968 he received his degree in Statistics at University College London, and he completed the M.Sc. in this discipline at the London School of Economics, where he served as Lecturer in 1970. In this same discipline he obtained his PhD at the Australian National University in 1973 under the supervision of Prof. Edward Hannan. After working at the universities of Harvard, British Columbia and Surrey, he returned to the London School of Economics in 1984, where he currently occupies the Tooke Chair in Economic Science and Statistics, the highest scientific distinction of this institution. The London School of Economics has lead for decades the implementation of Statistics in Social Sciences, particularly Economics, developing probabilistic models able to explain economic agents behaviour with the help of Economic Theory; that is, Econometrics. Professor Robinson has contributed significantly to the impressive advance of this discipline in the last decades, for which he has been awarded the titles of Fellow of the British Academy, the Econometric Society and the Institute of Mathematical Statistics. He has supervised 23 doctoral researchers.
