Personal profile

Personal information

Bo Andree is a researcher at the Department of Spatial Economics of the VU University Amsterdam and a data scientist with the Fragility Conflict and Violence unit at the World Bank.

His research interests include spatial-time series econometrics, economics, and statistical learning methods, with an empirical focus on environmental and developmental policies. His current efforts at the VU are directed towards the development of innovative spatial-time series models. You can follow his current research.

Bo is currently working Predicting Famine with Aart Kraay, Director of Research at the World Bank and on the Theory and Application of Dynamic Spatial Time Series Models with Eric Koomen and Francisco Blasques of the VU University Amsterdam.


Bo completed the Earth and Economics BSc programme at the VU with additional courses in economics and a minor in GIS. He completed the Spatial, Transport and Environmental Economics MSc programme with a double specialization in Regional and Urban economics, and Transport economics, and followed extracurricular courses from the Econometrics and Operations Research MSc programme. He wrote his thesis, with the title "Evaluating Spatial Heterogeneity and Temporal Movements in Cross-sectional Dependence Structures", on smooth transition modelling of spatial -time series with joint supervision from the Econometrics Department, the Spatial Economics Department, and the SPINlab.
