Chair of Statistics and Econometrics
At the chair of statistics and econometrics, we study and develop statistical methods for answering important economic questions.
Our research focuses on microeconometric methods, i.e. on tools for the analysis of individual-level data. For instance, we work on data analysis when variables are measured with error, inference for rankings, identification of causal policy effects, nonparametric estimation and inference for treatment effects, and randomization inference. A more detailed description of our research projects can be found on the research page.
In teaching, we provide the entire sequence of courses for the econometrics specialization of the MSc in Statistics. We teach a modern econometrics curriculum that includes theoretical foundations, recent insights from econometrics research, and modern methods for the analysis of high-dimensional (“big”) data. All courses explore the usefulness of the various statistical methods for answering important economic questions. More details can be found on our teaching page.
