The Kenneth C. Griffin Department of Economics is pleased to announce that Alexander Torgovitsky has been awarded the National Science Foundation CAREER grant, the organization's most prestigious junior faculty award. The CAREER grant supports early-career faculty who "exemplify the role of teacher-scholars through [their] outstanding research, and the integration of education and research within the context of the mission of their organizations." Torgovitsky, whose recent work has focused on developing new methodologies for estimating demand and identification of causal effects, will be Principal Investigator on the grant entitled, “CAREER – Identification as Optimization.” The goal of the proposed research is to widen the choice of available methodology in a way that gives researchers more flexibility in exploring the assumptions-conclusions frontier.
