Latané Distinguished Professor in Economics at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. He holds a M.Sc in Mathematics and Economics from University of Copenhagen and a Ph.D. in Economics from University of California, San Diego. Before joining the Department of Economics at UNC in 2016,  he was Professor of Econometrics at the European University Institute (2011-2016), Assistant Professor of Economics at Stanford University (2004-2012) and Assistant Professor of Economics at Brown University (2000-2004). He is the current director of the (EC)^2 conference series.

Professor Hansen is a leading researcher on forecasting and volatility modeling, and he has featured on the Thomson Reuters’ list of the World’s Most Influential Scientific Minds in 2014, 2015, and most recently in 2016 as one out of 70 economists worldwide.
