Hello, and welcome to my site!
My name is Bryan S. Weber, and I teach Econometrics and Behavioral Economics at the College of Staten Island – CUNY. My areas of expertise: Applied Econometrics, Applied Microeconomics, Labor, Transportation, and Urban Economics, though this site is primarily used to document tangential findings.
Since we all remain students in some way, this website also serves as a place to document and share current projects involving the software and mathematics that makes the advanced research in our field possible. These include tutorials, uncovered challenges and their solutions, side projects, and class exercises.
I’d be happy to answer any questions or comments, feel free to comment on any post at any time.
