Arthur Thomas

I am currently a Teaching Fellow for Computer Science in ENSAE Paris and a CREST affiliated member. I am also Associated researcher in the Climate Economics Chair and in Chair of the Economics of Natural Gas. I am a graduate in statistical engineering from the National School for Statistics and Data Analysis (ENSAI). In 2017, to further pursue my academic interest in econometrics, I accepted a PhD scholarship from the IFP School and the University of Nantes under the supervision of Oliver Massol, Associate Professor at IFP School and City, University of London and Benoît Sèvi, Professor of Economics, University of Nantes. I defend my PhD in December 2020. The member of my committee was:

  • Karim Abadir, Professor of Financial Econometrics, Imperial College London (Reviewers)
  • Derek Bunn, Professor of Decision Sciences, London Business School (Examiners)
  • Dimitris Korobilis, Professor of Econometrics, University of Glasgow (Reviewers)
  • Valérie Mignon, Professeur des Universités, Université Paris Nanterre (Examiners)

I have presented my research in international conferences, in different fields, Operations Research, Econometrics, Finance and Energy.

    Les Jeunes Economètres is a working group created in September 2016 on time series econometrics. Its aim is to bring together young econometricians (doctoral students at the end of their thesis, post-doctoral fellows and young Associate professors) from the Paris region in order to encourage scientific collaboration and the setting up of funded projects. The group meets monthly at a seminar entitled “Thé des économètres” for presentations and discussions on theoretical and applied econometric issues. It currently includes 27 members from the Universities of Panthéon-Sorbonne, Paris Dauphine, Paris Nanterre, Paris 8, Paris 13, Orléans, Cergy, Nantes, ENSAE (CREST), ESSEC Business School and Paris School of Economics.
