Michael C. Knaus

I am an Assistant Professor of Econometrics at the Swiss Institute for Empirical Economic Research of the University of St. Gallen and part of the Data and Method Consulting that advices students and faculty regarding their empirical work. I am moving to a tenure track position at the University of Tübingen in August 2022.

My research interests are at the intersection of causal inference and machine learning to answer questions in empirical, mostly labor, economics. In particular I am currently working on the estimation of average and heterogeneous treatment effects as well as optimal policy estimation. See my research section or Google Scholar for more details.
