“The Intersection of Econometrics and Applied Micro”


Organized by the Department of Economics, University of Toronto

Woodsworth College Residence, Room 25 • 321 Bloor Street West M5S 1S5


DESCRIPTION

Currently there exists a wide gap between recent developments in econometrics and the econometric methods being used in empirical work. In particular, many new econometric methods seem to be lacking a strong empirical motivation. At the same time, many empirical economists seem to be foregoing the opportunity to use state-of-the-art tools in econometrics.

The purpose of the conference is to promote interaction between researchers in the fields of Econometrics and Applied Micro, and to provide examples of researchers who have successfully combined good econometrics with good empirical work. The professors speaking at the event are:

Xavier D’Haultfoeuille, ENSAE
Maximillian Kasy, Harvard
Kory Kroft, University of Toronto
Matthew Shum, Caltech

  More details on the speakers plus conference schedule.

Event is free for University of Toronto students and faculty.
