Clément de Chaisemartin completed his PhD at the Paris School of Economics. Prior to joining UCSB, he has been an assistant professor in Warwick University in the UK. He is a J-Pal and an NBER affiliate.
Chaisemartin's main field of research is Econometrics, where he develops new statistical methods for impact evaluation, and writes computer programs implementing his proposed methods, that other researchers can then use in their own studies. He also works on Economics of education, where he studies the effect of policies intended at bridging the learning gap between children from high and low socio-economic background. Finally, he occasionally works on Health Economics and medical questions.
