I am teaching two units this semester at the University of Sydney.

Econometric theory provides techniques to quantify the strength and form of relationships between variables. Econometric methods are concerned with the appropriate use of these techniques in practical applications in economics. This unit offers an introduction to the theory and practice of econometrics, discussing general principles for undertaking applied work. Topics may include discrete choice models, maximum likelihood estimation, limited dependent variable models, panel data methods, and nonparametric estimations.

This unit concentrates on mainstream models and estimation and inference methods that are widely used in most empirical investigations in microeconomics, with an emphasis on the underlying theory. Topics may include generalized least squares estimates, joint hypothesis testing, instrumental variables, nonlinear regression, and limited dependent variable models.
