Dr Eduardo Fe

Strathclyde Chancellor'S Fellow


Personal statement

Eduardo is an applied econometrician who uses experiments and secondary data to understand the development and economic implications of human capital. His research contributes to the understanding of the relationship between human capital and economic decision taking during childhood and the old age. He is currently researching the development of strategic and reciprocal behaviour in children, the partial identification of the effect of drought on children’s long-term cognitive development and the estimation of identification regions for the causal effect of retirement on cognitive development under invalid instruments.

Eduardo has published his research in high impact international journals (such as the Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, Health Economics or Journal of Productivity Analysis).

Before joining Strathclyde, Eduardo was a Senior Researcher at the University of Oxford (Blavatnik School of Government and Health Economics Research Centre). Prior to that, he was a tenured RCUK Fellow and Lecturer at the University of Manchester where he taught Econometric Theory and Statistics. Eduardo completed a Ph.D. in Econometrics at the University of Manchester thanks to the generous support of Fundación Ramón Areces.

Analysing Strategic Decision Making in Childhood
Fe, Eduardo (Principal Investigator)
Strategic thinking is a complex skill that involves understanding how others will behave and best responding to those beliefs. It is a crucial determinant of outcomes in human interactions and for the fulfillment of successful lives. Because skills measured at early ages are strong predictors of outcomes in later life (with ability gaps opening up early in the life) a better understanding of the development of children’s strategic abilities can help to explain inequalities in abilities and success during adulthood and contribute to the design of policies. This project identifies the determinants and distribution of strategic abilities in childhood and studies its evolution over time.
