Xiaohong Chen is currently Malcolm K. Brachman Professor of Economics, Yale University. Previously, she has taught at the University of Chicago, London School of Economics and New York University. Chen got her PhD in Economics in 1993 from University of California, San Diego.
Chen’s research field is econometrics. She is known for her research in penalized sieve estimation and inference on semiparametric and nonparametric models, with applications in copulas, asset pricing, missing data, nonclassical measurement errors and causal inference.
She is a winner of the China Economics Prize in 2017. She is a distinguished fellow of the Luohan Academy from 2020 to 2022. She won Econometric Theory Multa Scripsit Award in 2012, The Journal of Nonparametric Statistics 2010 Best Paper Award, The Richard Stone Prize in Journal of Applied Econometrics for the years 2008 and 2009, The Arnold Zellner Award for the best theory paper published in Journal of Econometrics in 2006 and 2007.
