17/03/2016: Don Green teaching 3-days experimental workshop in Zurich
I'm happy to welcome Don Green (Columbia University) to the University of Zurich for a 20-hours workshop marathon on field experiments. Thanks to the Department of Political Science for the generous support. Below are some impressions from the first and second day. The workshop is open to UZH and ETH graduate students, visitors, as well as Policy Lab participants.



How can you do an experiment when you don’t have a huge grant?
Check out Andy Egger's brief blog entry that also quotes some of my experiences doing field experiments as a grad student: http://andy.egge.rs/blog/
