The Econometrics Society honours three Faculty members
- Econometric Society logo
Founded in the early 1930's by the American Economic Association, the American Statistical Association, and the American Mathematical Society, the Econometric Society is an international society for the advancement of economic theory in its relation to statistics and mathematics.
The Society is most well-known for the publication of three journals: Econometrica - one of the "Top 5" reviews in the discipline - Quantitative Economics, and Theoretical Economics. But it also publishes a research Monograph Series and organises world conferences in six regions of the world.
On September 17th, the Econometric Society announced the election of Jean-Marc ROBIN to its Council. He is a Fellow since 2007, and was also already elected to the Council in 2009.
Jean-Marc ROBIN is a Professor of Economics at the Department since 2010 and served as Chair from 2013 to 2018. He is also Professor of Economics (part-time) at University College London (UCL) and a team member of the Centre for Microdata Methods and Practice (CEMMAP) at the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS).
In 2018 he became a Founding Fellow of the International Association for Applied Econometrics.
As of the Fall 2019, Jean-Marc ROBIN is a Senior Member of the prestigious Institut universitaire de France (IUF).
His research interests focus on microeconometrics, labour microeconomics and search and matching.
On September 22nd, the Econometrics Society also announced the election of its 2022 Fellows. Two of the Department's faculty members have been distinguished: Moshe BUCHINSKY, Permanent Faculty member as of July 2021 and Alfred GALICHON, Affiliated & Associated Faculty member.
Moshe BUCHINSKY will be joining the Department as Full Professor of Economics as of July 2021. He is currently at the Department of Economics of the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA). He is also a consultant for the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System.
He is affiliated to a number of research centres: a Research Affiliate at the Stanford Center for the Study of Poverty and Inequality as well as at the California Center for Population Research, and a Research Associate at NBER. Professor Buchinsky was Vice-Chair for Graduate Studies at UCLA's Department of Economics twice (2003-2006 and 2013-2016).
Moshe BUCHINSKY's research develops econometric tools and applies them to labour economics and public finance. Professor Buchinsky wrote seminal papers on quantile regression, using it to analyze changes in the distribution of wages. His other work studies returns to seniority and experience, and the degree of wage mobility.
Alfred GALICHON is a Professor of Economics and of Mathematics at NYU as well as the Director of NYU Paris and an affiliated faculty member of the Department.
His research interests span widely across theoretical, computational and empirical questions and include econometrics, microeconomic theory and data science. He is one of the pioneers of the use of optimal transport theory in econometrics, and the author of Optimal Transport Methods in Economics, published in 2016 by Princeton University Press, as well as of an open-source statistical software implementing these techniques, TraME.
Alfred Galichon has earned international recognition for his research: he has co-invented vector quantile regression, affinity estimation and the mass transport approach. He is one of the early contributors to optimal martingale transport theory and to equilibrium transport theory.
