Keisuke Hirano develops methods for analyzing economic data and assessing the impact of economic policies. His current work focuses on the design of social experiments, decision-theoretic methods for assigning individuals to policy interventions, and econometric analysis of behavior in auctions and other settings with strategic interactions.
