Andrew Adrian Pua is an econometrician working on panel data related issues. He has been involved in teaching and research in The Philippines, The Netherlands, Germany, and, most recently in China as an assistant professor of quantitative economics.
He has developed open educational resources and has written a couple of papers meant to easily get students up to speed so that they can engage with more difficult topics in econometrics.
Two personal tidbits: (1) He usually cooks dishes he has never tasted before. (2) If he were to be reborn as a vegetable, he would choose to be a radish.
Andrew is also our Conference Chair for 2025!
