Biographical Note:
Richard Spady came to the EUI in September 2005 from Nuffield College, Oxford where he was an Official Fellow and is currently Senior Research Fellow. He has published papers in Econometrica, the Journal of Econometrics, the Review of Economic Studies, Biometrika, and the Journal of Law and Economics, among others.

His research has been primarily in theoretical econometrics, but has included topics in empirical industrial organization, labor economics, statistical theory, and government regulation of industry. In addition to his continuing interests in nonparametric and semiparametric econometrics, he has recently been active in empirical political science (studying the relation between attitudes and voting behavior) and financial markets (constructing models of asset returns); the unifying theme of these new interests is latent factor models.
