Nobel Prize Winner Lecture: Guido Imbens
In cooperation with the Erasmus University Rotterdam, AEclipse invited Professor Guido Imbens, former Erasmus Universits student and recent winner of the Nobel prize in Economics, to speak about his most important work and his path to success.
In his lecture, Professor Imbens began with a short history of econometrics, where he talked about the gradual move from randomized control trials towards leveraging sophisticated methods to identify causal effects from observational data.
After his insightful lecture, Jonah Bol, Commissioner of Internal Affairs for study association AEclipse, interviewed Professor Imbens. They discussed Imbens’ time in Rotterdam and the influence Erasmus School of Economics and Professor Jan Tinbergen (1969 Nobel Prize winner) had on his career.
