The aim of the Stata Journal Editors’ Prize is to reward contributions to the Stata community in respect of one or more outstanding papers published in the Stata Journal in the previous three calendar years. The prize consists of a framed certificate and an honorarium of U.S. $1,000, courtesy of the publisher of the Stata Journal.
The editors of the Stata Journal are delighted to announce the award of the Editors’ Prize for 2018 to Federico Belotti.
In 2016, Federico became an assistant professor of econometrics at the Department of Economics and Finance of the University of Rome Tor Vergata. His research interests focus on microeconometric methods with applications in health, production, and spatial economics. Federico’s more methodological econometric work has been most recently on the analysis of panel data and has appeared in the Journal of Econometrics. During his undergraduate studies, he discovered that learning econometrics is made much easier by coding estimators and by studying their finite sample properties via simulation. Since then, he has always given a high priority to software implementations of existing and novel econometric methods. The award recognizes specifically two outstanding papers by Federico.
