Rosa Liliana Matzkin is the Charles E. Davidson Professor of Economics. Her research has been aimed at creating a tight connection between econometrics and economic theory, relaxing, at the same time, ad-hoc parametric restrictions on functions and distributions. She has worked on Revealed Preference, Discrete Choice, Shape Restrictions, Hedonic Models, Consumer Demand, and Models of Simultaneous Equations. She has developed nonparametric methods for estimation, testing, and prediction where shape restrictions and/or nonadditive unobservable variables play key roles. Her work has been published in Econometrica, Journal of the American Statistical Association, Journal of Economic Theory, and Journal of Econometrics, among others.
Professor Matzkin, a Fellow of the Econometric Society, was a member of the Executive Committees of the American Economic Association and of the Econometric Society. She is currently the Editor of Quantitative Economics. Previously, she was Co-editor of the Research Monograph Series of the Econometric Society and Associate Editor of Econometrica and Journal of Econometrics.
Before joining UCLA, Professor Matzkin held positions at Northwestern and Yale Universities.
