Speaker profile

Peter Moffatt is a Professor of Econometrics in the School of Economics.  Most recently, his research has been in the area of “experimetrics”, that is, the econometric modeling of data from economic experiments.  In particular, he is interested in ways of incorporating between-subject heterogeneity into such models.  An important recent development in experimetrics is the use of finite mixture models, which recognize that the population is made up of different types of subject, who respond in different ways to different stimuli.  Peter has already applied this type of model to data from public goods experiments and risky choice experiments, and plans to extend this set of applications in future.
