This year we have two students working in the field of Econometrics on the academic job market.
Vishal Kamat works on identification of program effects in settings with latent choice sets; that is, situations where the unobserved heterogeneity that arises when the choice set from which the agent selects treatment is heterogeneous and unobserved by the researcher. You can find his job market paper here.
Eric Mbakop works on identification in auction models with discrete unobserved heterogeneity and incomplete bid data; that is, settings where the econometrician observes an incomplete set of bids from several auctions and does not observe all the variables that affect the distribution of bidders’ valuation.You can find his job market paper here.
