Professor Ridder studies econometrics, with a particular interest in microeconometrics and its applications. In past years these applications have been in labor economics, public finance, economic development, economic demography, transportation research and the economics of sports. His methodological interests are the (nonparametric) identification of statistical and economic structures from observed distributions (mainly in duration data and discrete choice data), models and estimation methods for duration data and panel data, (selectively) missing data and causal inference.
He has published in numerous journals, including Econometrica, Quantitative Economics, Review of Economic Studies, Journal of Econometrics, and Advances in Applied Probability.
Professor Ridder is a Fellow of the Econometric Society and is the winner of the 1989 Ruigrok award for economics, the 1995 Van Dantzig award for distinguished contributions to statistics, the 1992 Richard Stone prize for Applied Econometrics, and the Hicks-Tinbergen medal of the European Economic Association (with J.C. van Ours).
