Hi there👋

Welcome to my GitHub profile!

I am Pedro H. C. Sant'Anna, an Associate Professor at the Department of Economics at Emory University.

I'm an Applied Econometrician, and I am very curious about how econometric things work (in theory and in practice).

My main areas of research interest are in the intersection of

  • Causal Inference;
  • Data-adaptive methods (aka Machine Learning);
  • Semiparametric methods;
  • Applied Microeconomics.

In the last few years, I have devoted much of my time to developing, better understanding, and improving Difference-in-Differences (DiD) methods.

I have also spent some time in Tech (Microsoft and Amazon), which I've greatly enjoyed.

In my GitHub, you will find:

  • 📦 Packages that I have developed with co-authors (usually in R);
  • 💾 Replication packages for some of my published papers;
  • 📝 Some lecture notes from courses that I teach.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me:
