Using Natural Experiments to Answer Life’s Biggest Questions
Guido Imbens breaks down his Nobel Prize-winning work using observational experiments to create meaningful solutions. Imbens illustrates the practical applications of his ground-breaking ideas: how we can learn to become accurate observers and use reliable data to solve issues from getting the most out of our career and our teams, to navigating supply chain issues.
Guido Imbens does research in econometrics and statistics. His research focuses on developing methods for drawing causal inferences in observational studies, using matching, instrumental variables, and regression discontinuity designs.
Guido Imbens is Professor of Economics at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. After graduating from Brown University Guido taught at Harvard University, UCLA, and UC Berkeley. He holds an honorary degree from the University of St Gallen. Professor Imbens joined the GSB in 2012 where he specializes in econometrics, and in particular methods for drawing causal inferences. Guido Imbens is a fellow of the Econometric Society and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
