Dobrodošli na predstavitveni strani Andreja Srakarja.

Welcome to the webpage of Andrej Srakar.

I work as a Scientific Associate at Institute for Economic Research in Ljubljana and Assistant Professor at the School of Economics and Business, University of Ljubljana. Finishing second PhD in mathematical statistics at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, University of Ljubljana. Fulbright scholar in economics, Indiana University Bloomington, United States (2011/12).

Bulk of my research work lies on the intersection of probability theory, stochastic processes and mathematical analysis. I often use this in the development of novel estimators and approaches in mathematical statistics and econometrics, mathematical physics and mathematical biology (including applications in cultural economics, SHARE data and macroeconomics).

More specifically, my current research interests lie in several directions:

  • probability and random geometry (random matrices and free probability, Schramm-Loewner evolution, stochastic differential equations with complex variables, interacting particle systems, random trees);

  • complex, functional and harmonic analysis, operator theory, fractal geometry, combinatorics, partial differential equations;

  • object-oriented and nonparametric statistics;

  • Bayesian statistics;

  • econometrics and causal inference;

  • high-dimensional statistical learning, adversarial learning, adaptive learning;

  • applications to cultural economics; SHARE database; and macroeconomics.

My activities take part being among other member of European Mathematical Society, Institute of Mathematical Statistics, Bernoulli Society for Mathematical Statistics and Probability, Royal Statistical Society (I'm member of committee of the RSS Emerging Applications Section), Econometric Society, European Economic Association, American Economic Association, International Association for Applied Econometrics, International Society for Bayesian Analysis, Society for Causal Inference, American Statistical Association, International Health Economics Association and Association for Cultural Economics International.

I'm currently coordinating two larger projects of online seminars and blogs:

YoungStatS - The blog and One World YoungStatS webinar of Young Statisticians Europe (YSE)

Cultural Economics Online Seminar, Association for Cultural Economics International

Do get involved if interested and please write me an email on first.last(at)ier.si and/or first.last(at)ef.uni-lj.si.

Editor-in-chief of Review of Economics and Economic Methodology (REEM), indexed by EconLit.

I am joint Coordinator of the Young Section of the Slovenian Statistical Society and active member of Young Statisticians Europe coordination.

I'm member of ERCIM Working Groups on Computational and Methodological Statistics (specialized team in Functional Data Analysis, http://www.cmstatistics.org/FDA.php) and Computational and Financial Econometrics.

As of May 2018, I have been continually listed among the top 15 Slovenian economists by number of points, total research output and exceptional achievements in the main Slovenian research base SICRIS. Since January 2020, I'm in the top ten.
