I am a data analyst and a researcher holding a PhD in business administration with specialization in finance. I help businesses, researchers, and students all over the world to analyze their data effectively using various statistical tools but primarily using STATA. At the same time, my extensive research work on finance and micro-economics has been published by leading peer-reviewed journals. The combination of domain knowledge in finance and economics on one hand, and excellent technical skills on the other allow me to generate valuable insights from my clients’ data.
My skillset includes
-Data analysis for business and research purposes using methods from data mining, econometrics and statistics
-Causal inference (propensity score matching, regression discontinuity design (RDD), difference-in-difference (DID) estimation, event studies)
-Quantitative market research data analysis (regression analysis, time series analysis, hypothesis testing)
-I have experience with cross-sectional, time-series, panel, survey, firm (business) data.
-Statistical consulting/tutoring using Stata
