Associate Professor of Economics
Professor Bugni’s research interests are in theoretical econometrics, partial identification, inference, moment (in)equalities, missing data, and stochastic processes. He has received grants from the National Science Foundation. His most recent work has been published in journals like Econometrica. He is currently working on projects the explore the determinants of college graduation, missing functional data, robustness in partial identification, and regression with missing covariates.
