Mark W. Watson (born 1952) is an American professor of econometrics. He currently teaches at Princeton University. Prior to coming to Princeton in 1995, Watson served on the economics faculty at Harvard University and Northwestern University. His research focuses on time-series econometrics, empirical macroeconomics, and macroeconomic forecasting.

Watson has published widely cited articles in these areas, and is the co-author of Introduction to Econometrics, a leading undergraduate textbook.

He and Tim Bollerslev are widely regarded as carrying forward the work of the Nobel Prize-winning economist Robert F. Engle, as acknowledged by Engle himself.[1]
