[About the Speaker]
Professor Chen is currently Malcolm K. Brachman Professor of Economics at Yale University. Professor Chen is an elected fellow of the Economic Society, a fellow of Journal of Econometrics, an international fellow of Cemmap, and a co-winner of the 2017 China Economics Prize.
Professor Chen’s research field is econometrics, and has published papers in Econometrica, Review of Economic Studies, Journal of Econometrics, Annuals of Statistics and other top ranked journals. Professor Chen is currently an associate editor of Econometrica, Journal of Econometrics, Quantitative Economics and The Econometric Journal. Professor Chen is a co-editor of Foundations and Trends in Econometrics.
Many semiparametric models in economics are increasingly more flexible and yet are more difficult to ensure point-identification of structural parameters of interest. In this talk, Professor Chen will describe some published and unpublished papers on penalized sieve likelihood ratio (LR) inference on nonstandard semiparametric likelihood models, and penalized sieve optimally weighted Quasi LR inference on nonstandard semiparametric conditional moment restriction models.
