Professor of Economics
Edward Vytlacil is an econometrician, whose work has focused on the micro-econometric methodology for treatment effect and policy evaluation using disaggregate data. A theme in his work has been in allowing for the effects of a treatment to vary across people, and allowing individuals to have some knowledge of their own idiosyncratic treatment effect and to act upon that knowledge. In addition to his work in econometric methodology, he has published empirical work in labor economics and health economics evaluating the returns to schooling, the returns to job training programs, and the effectiveness of medical interventions.
Ed received his PhD in Economics from the University of Chicago in 2000. He is rejoining the Yale faculty, having also previously been on the faculty at Stanford University, Columbia University, and most recently New York University.
