Associate Professor of Economics
Welcome. I perform research in semiparametric microeconometric models, with a special focus on robust inference in strategic interaction models such as games and auctions. My work focuses on identification and inference of these models under weak assumptions concerning their underlying structure (distribution of unobservables, parametric specification of payoffs, etc.) as well as agents' behavior (e.g, allowing for nonequilibrium behavior and bounded rationality). Financial Support from the National Science Foundation through Grants SES 0718409/0946894 and SES 0922062 is gratefully acknowledged.
