I am an econometrician and economist working in the area of statistical inference (decision making). My main research interests are the generalized method of moments (GMM), instrumental variables (IV), two-stage least squares (2SLS), and generalized empirical likelihood (GEL) estimators and their large sample properties under the general model misspecification. Specifically, I am interested in developing robust inference methods under misspecified moment conditions, invalid/many/weak instruments, heterogeneous treatment effects, and clustered sampling.
