Associate Professor of Economics
- Ph.D. Brown University, 2000
- Duration Models
- Panel Data Models
- Identification of IO Models
Professor Woutersen's research focuses on the estimation and testing of economic models. He is particularly interested in relaxing restrictions that are not implied by economic theory. For example, allowing the variation of the error term to vary across observations (“heteroscedasticity”) in models with endogeneity and many instruments. Other topics that he is working on include duration models, panel data models, and identification of IO models.
