I am an Assistant Professor of Economics (Econometrics) at the University of Michigan. For the academic year 2023/2024 I'm on leave at Princeton University. I will be joining Emory University as an Associate Professor in the fall of 2024. 

My research interests are nonparametric approaches for statistical identification, estimation, and inference. My current focus is on statistical optimal transport theory, mean field estimation, causal inference, and free discontinuity problems. 

David Van Dijcke is writing an R and STATA implementation of the "Distributional Synthetic Controls" method which is robust and (hopefully) easy to implement. Check out the "Code" section for the latest code.
