Rosa Liliana Matzkin is 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, Nonparametric Identification, Equilibrium Models, and Nonseparable Models.  She has developed methods for estimation, testing, and prediction of outcomes when structures change.

Professor Matzkin is a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the Econometric Society, the International Association of Applied Econometrics, the Society of Economic Measurement, and the Journal of Econometrics.  She served as the chief Editor of Quantitative Economics, as Co-editor of the Research Monograph Series of the Econometric Society, and as Associate Editor of Econometrica and Journal of Econometrics. Currently, she is co-editing the Handbooks in Economics series (Elsevier) and Vol. 7 of Handbook of Econometrics (Elsevier), and she is a member of the Editorial Committee of Annual Review of Economics.  Professor Matzkin was a member of the Executive Committees of the American Economic Association and of the Econometric Society.

Before joining UCLA, Professor Matzkin held faculty positions at Yale University and Northwestern University and several visiting positions including at the University of Chicago, MIT, and Caltech.
