Elie Tamer is the Robert E. and Emily King Professor of Business Institutions at Northwestern University. He is an econometrician that is interested in the relationship between models that economists are interested and the data that are observed. In particular, his research is related to the inference question that arises when confronting models with multiple decision makers, such as a family, to data on outcomes from these markets. The link is typically subtle and inference procedures, and the amount of learning that can be done using data, are directly related to the model of interaction that is posed.
Tamer received a M.A. from the BSEE University of Texas at Austin in May 1994, and a Ph.D. in Economics from Northwestern University in May 1999.
