NBER Profile: Andrew Metrick
Andrew Metrick is an NBER Faculty Research Fellow in the Asset Pricing
Program and an Assistant Professor of Finance at the Wharton School of the University
of Pennsylvania. He received a B.A. in Economics and Mathematics from Yale in 1989
and a Ph.D. in Economics from Harvard in 1994.
From 1994-9, Metrick was a junior faculty member in the Harvard economics
department. His early research focused on behavioral decision theory, with papers on
such "serious" topics as contestant behavior on the game show "Jeopardy!" and betting
behavior in NCAA basketball tournament pools. He enjoys discovering and exploring
new datasets, and since data on game shows and betting pools is somewhat limited, his
research later shifted towards financial economics and he moved to the Wharton finance
department in 1999.
In his free time, Metrick likes to play chess and read books. He is happy to report
that he has had far less time to do either since his wife Susie gave birth to their first child,
David, in November 2001. The Metricks live in Merion, PA.
