Econ 508B

Econ 508B is a three-week review class for incoming doctoral students in economics and other related fields. It aims to cover some of prerequisites for Introduction to Econometrics, Applied Econometrics, & Quantitative Methods in Economics and equips students with basic knowledge of probability and statistical concepts that are used in the first-year macro and micro core courses. In addition, this year I intend to incorporate a week series review of the state-of-the-art methodologies in Machine Learning, Deep Learning, and Natural Language Processing (NLP). It time permits, we can also go through some classical algorithms and data structure frequently used in Machine Learning via Python, such as BFS, DFS, Binary search and binary tree, Two pointers, Hash & Heap, dynamic programming, etc.
