Econometrics For Empirical Climate Modeling
Monday, Nov 12, 2018
Join us for a lecture by Sir David Hendry of Oxford University. Sir David is the co-Director of Nuffield College’s Climate Econometrics project, which aims to improve understanding of the impact of humanity on climate and vice versa, as well as on how econometrics can be used in climate-economic research, and bring together researchers in the field of Climate Econometrics through an international network.
Professor Hendry will discuss how econometrics can be used in climate-economic research, drawing from his recent work and findings from applying novel empirical approaches to understanding climate change and its impacts in the past, present, and future. The talk will be followed by a brief Q&A with Earth Institute Director Alex Halliday.
Sponsors: Columbia University Earth Institute, School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA), Department of Economics and Program + Economics Research (PER).
Monday, November 12 6:00 PM After the lecture, there will be ample time for discussion over wine, beer + hors d'oeuvres.
