About the speaker:
Professor Li’s primary research and teaching interests are microeconometrics with a focus on identification and inference of econometric models with latent variables, and game-theoretic models. He also studies dynamic/nonlinear panel data analysis, and empirical microeconomics with a focus on empirical analysis of strategic behavior of agents with asymmetric information. His research has been supported by the National Science Foundation and the American Statistical Association Committee on Law and Justice Statistics. His work has been published in general interest journals including Econometrica, Review of Economic Studies, American Economic Journal: Microeconomics, International Economic Review, Review of Economics and Statistics, and top field journals such as the Journal of Econometrics, RAND Journal of Economics, Games and Economic Behavior. He has served as an associate editor of the Journal of Econometrics, the Journal of Applied Econometrics, the Journal of Econometric Methods, and the Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization. Since 1999 he has supervised eleven Ph.D. dissertations and has placed students on faculty at London School of Economics, North Carolina State University, National University of Singapore, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Temple University, among others.
