Newest CRATE Member: Elena Manresa

NYU-CRATE welcomes the newest member of our research staff, Professor Elena Manresa.  ProfessorManresa completed her PhD in Economics from CEMFI, Spain in 2014, and was previously a Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Chicago. She has now joined the faculty of the NYU Economics Department.  She is an econometrician specializing in micro-econometrics, applied microeconomics and financial econometrics.  Her current research interests include exploring potential of machine learning techniques to explain economic phenomena, as well as statistical modeling based on the idea that economic data is different from any other kind of data (like medical or engineering data) to unveil why people make certain decisions.  She will strengthen and broaden econometrics at NYU Economics and within our center, we look forward to having her as part of our group.
