Jörg Stoye



Jörg Stoye is a Professor in the Department of Economics and also a member of the Graduate Minor Field of Data Science. He works on microeconometric methods, especially as they interact with microeconomic theory. Current research is on inference under partial identification, on the statistical testing of Revealed Preference conditions, and on COVID-19. Other recent work is in statistical decision theory (e.g., on treatment choice as a decision problem) and on related questions in pure theory (e.g., axiomatic foundations for the Minimax Regret decision criterion). Among other outlets, his research has been published in Econometrica, the Econometrics JournalEconometric Theory, the Journal of Econometrics, the Journal of Economic Theory, Quantitative Economics, the Review of Economic Studies, and the Review of Economics and Statistics.

Professor Stoye holds a PhD from Northwestern University, an MSc (Distinction) from the London School of Economics, and a Diplom from the University of Cologne. He is a Fellow of the International Association for Applied Econometrics and of the econometrics committee ("Ausschuss für Ökonometrie") of the German Economic Association. He is a past Associate Editor of the Review of Economics and Statistics and a current Associate Editor of the Journal of Political Economy as well as the Econometrics Journal.
