Tetsuya Kaji works at the intersections of economics, statistics, and machine learning. His research is directed toward the development of practical solutions to applied econometric problems, statistical assessment of them, and fundamental understanding of nonstandard econometric problems. Recent projects include the study of empirical processes, semiparametric foundations of weak identification, incorporation of estimation error in financial risk management, and effective adaptation of artificial intelligence techniques in economic applications.
Kaji, who is a Richard N. Rosett Faculty Fellow at Chicago Booth, was among the first to receive the interdisciplinary PhD in economics and statistics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He also holds an MA in economics from the University of Tokyo.
