Irene Botosaru, associate professor in the department of economics, is the new Canada Research Chair in Applied Econometrics (Tier 2). Botosaru’s research program will develop models and methods to accommodate unobservable variables in economics, such as ability, beliefs, expectations, risk and aversion. These non-measurable concepts play an important role in determining decisions of economic agents.
