Mohitosh Kejriwal

Professor of Economics


Ph.D., Economics, Boston University
M.S., Quantitative Economics, Indian Statistical Institute
B.Sc.(Honors), Economics, St. Xavier's College


Professor Kejriwal joined the Krannert faculty in Fall 2007. His areas of interest are econometric theory and applied econometrics. Specificially, he is interested in theoretical and empirical issues in time series and panel data econometrics. His research has been published in peer-reviewed outlets such as Journal of Econometrics, Econometric Theory, Journal of Business & Economic Statistics, Journal of Applied Econometrics, The Econometrics Journal and Journal of Time Series Analysis, among others. He has also served as an ad hoc reviewer for the National Science Foundation as well as several economics and statistics journals. He is the recipient of the 2009 John and Mary Willis Young Faculty Scholar Award and the 2013 Jay N. Ross Young Faculty Scholar Award for excellence in research. He was appointed University Faculty Scholar at Purdue for the period 2014-2019.
