Thomas Tao Yang is an Associate Professor of Econometrics. Thomas’s research focuses on identification and estimation for a range of micro-economics models, specifically, the order threshold model, the linear probability model, the binary choice model with interactive effects, the panel data model with interactive effects, and the non-separable unobservable model with monotonicity assumption. Thomas’s research has been published in a number of top-ranked economics journals including Journal of EconometricsAdvances in EconometricsJournal of Business and Economic Statistics and Canadian Journal of Economics.
