From January 22 – 26, 2018, Dr. Peter Moffatt, professor of econometrics in the School of Economics at the University of East Anglia (U.K.), visited Texas A&M University as a joint guest of the Department of Economics and the Department of Sociology.
On January 22, Dr. Moffatt presented a behavioral economics seminar on the topic of “Strategic Interaction with Sophisticated Agents.” On January 26, he presented a day-long workshop on experimetrics in Rudder Tower that was attended by faculty and graduate students from various TAMU departments. Throughout the week, he met with various members of TAMU’s economics community (both faculty and students) to discuss research and opportunities for future collaboration.
Dr. Moffatt’s research has been focused in the area of “experimetrics,” the econometric modeling of data from experiments. (His recent book is Experimetrics: Econometrics for Experimental Economics.) In particular, he is interested in ways of incorporating between-subject heterogeneity into models.
Dr. Moffatt previously visited the Department of Economics in 2015.
