Most of his recent work is related to the development of new, improved semiparametric and nonparametric inference procedures exhibiting demonstrable robustness properties with respect to tuning parameter and other implementation choices. Most of this work is motivated by concrete empirical problems in social sciences and several other disciplines, and covers a wide array of topics related to treatment effects and policy evaluation, average derivatives and structural response functions, applied finance and applied microeconomics, among others.
