Michael C. Knaus

I am an Assistant Professor of Econometrics at the Swiss Institute for Empirical Economic Research of the University of St. Gallen. I am part of the Data and Method Consulting that advices students and faculty regarding their empirical work.

My research interests are at the intersection of causal inference and machine learning to answer questions in empirical economics. In particular I am currently working on the estimation of average and heterogeneous treatment effects. See my research section for more details.
