Luke Barry, Queen’s University Belfast attends MSU econometrics training for NEPHSTROM economics modelling

On June 4th 2021, Luke Barry, Queen’s University Belfast attended a weekend course on modern applied tools of econometrics called ÊSTIMATE at Michigan State University (MSU). The course provided empirical practitioners, academic researchers, industry/government researchers/analysts, and graduate students, access to econometrics training usually reserved for students formally enrolled in PhD programs at MSU. Luke comments, “I was lucky to be able to attend this course given it was run online this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. ÊSTIMATE is an intensive weekend workshop taught by world-class econometricians. ÊSTIMATE’s focus is modern econometric tools as used in practice. My work with NEPHSTROM has been the development of a cost-effectiveness model and the preparation of data to fill this model using such econometric tools so receiving training from such world-class teachers has been invaluable.”
