I am an environmental and labor economist at Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA). I use theory and data to study how beliefs affect decisionmaking, the role of information—especially professional forecasts—in shaping beliefs, and the effect of forward-looking behavior on empirical analyses. Much of my work focuses on estimating damages from climate change, accounting for how individuals and groups anticipate and adapt to those changes.

Ankit Bhutani has created new Python code to estimate two-sample two-stage least squares (TS2SLS). The code also works in R! Find it on Ankit’s github page. The new code provides more accurate standard error calculations than my Stata code.
