Teaching

My "Statistics and Econometrics" material

Notes

I prepared these lecture notes to provide my students with a cohesive material that would adopt a unified notation and structure across different classes. I drew inspiration and material from multiple sources, and a few textbooks in particular: "Statistical Inference" by George Casella and Rorger L. Berger (which is most apparent in "Lectures" 1 and 4), "Microeconometrics: Methods and Applications" by A. Colin Cameron and Pravin K. Trivedi, and "Econometrics" by Bruce E. Hansen.
