Wim Vijverberg appointed to the Graduate Center
Professor, Ph.D. Program in Economics
Wim Vijverberg has been appointed Professor of Economics. His areas of specialty lie at the intersection of labor economics, econometrics, and development economics. He has published fifty-one articles, which have appeared in the top rank of general journals (Journal of Political Economy, Economic Journal, Review of Economics and Statistics, International Economic Review) and in the top specialized journals (Journal of Econometrics, Journal of Development Economics, Journal of Human Resources, and Journal of Public Economics). Though a great deal of Vijverberg’s work is “applied” in that it uses econometric techniques to analyze and test theories, he has also made significant methodological contributions. He is working on a final report to the World Bank concerning a large, multi-year survey project on investment climates in a number of developing countries, which employs cutting-edge econometric techniques. Vijverberg holds a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Pittsburgh.
