Upcoming talks

For whatever reason, October is shaping up to be a big month for talks. If you'd to hear about things I've been thinking about lately (choice modeling, Bayesian structuralism etc.) then come along to one of these.

October 6, EconCS@Harvard (page not updated)

Shosh Vasserman and I will be talking through our Bayesian method of estimating aggregate random coefficients logit models. It's a bit like BLP, but with measurement error and Bayesian inference.

October 11, 8-9.30 pm, Columbia University. Details to follow.

I'll be speaking about how we're using structural models estimated using Bayesian techniques to price portfolios of consumer debt from Sub-Saharan Africa.

October 25, PAPIs, Microsoft Cambridge MA.

I'll be speaking about productizing structural models for industry.

October 30-31. DataEngConf, NYC

Same talk as above.


  1. These sound really interesting. Would be keen to see the slides after the talks if that was possible.
