We are very happy to report that Petra Todd has joined The Econometrics Journal as a Co-Editor from 1 March 2019. Petra is the Edmund J. and Louise W. Kahn Term Professor of Economics at the University of Pennsylvania. She has made key contributions to microeconometrics, in particular microeconometric policy evaluation, and empirical microeconomics, with a focus on problems in labor, education, and development economics.
Petra fills a vacancy left by John Rust, who resigned from 1 January 2019. We are very sorry to see John leave, but are thankful for his service to the Journal. This service will extend into 2019, as John will continue to handle the submissions that were already assigned to him and edit a Special Issue on Methodology and Applications of Structural Dynamic Models and Machine Learning related to the Second Conference on Structural Dynamic Models.
