Andrew Dilnot
Andrew Dilnot was awarded a CBE for services to economics and economic policy.
Andrew Dilnot is a former director of the Institute for Fiscal Studies, now Principal of St Hugh's College, Oxford.

Andrew says his whole career has been built on trying to understand and use numbers.

His earliest professional memory is sitting over the Family Expenditure survey in 1980 using a computer programme called Cobalt which produced numbers only in base 16.

He's a familiar face and voice commenting on government economic policy, particularly the budget.

Award

He's also a presenter of BBC Radio 4's Analysis Programme and was awarded a CBE in 2000 for services to economics and economic policy.

He likes gardening and cricket, is married to Catherine and has two daughters.

He can remember frequently being called "oaf" by his maths teacher.
