Mark Hendricks

Department of Economics and Booth School of Business, University of Chicago

Mark is investigating models in which economic agents 
act as statisticians that struggle while trying to infer the best fitting 
model and making inferences about it. It is using state of art Bayesian 
numerical methods, but modifying them to include some skepticism on the 
part of investors. He aim to explain why in some time periods there is 
”flight to quality” in search of financial market returns.

Mark Hendricks is currently Associate Director for the University of Chicago’s Financial Mathematics program.
