Biography

I am currently Professor of Econometrics at the School of Economics at the University of Nottingham, which I joined in 2017. Prior to that, I spent my career (being Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, Reader and subsequently Professor of Financial Econometrics) at Cass Business School.

Research Summary

I work in the fields of econometric theory and statistics. Over the years, I have touched upon the following areas (listed in no particular order):

  • large factor models;
  • randomised tests;
  • the change point problem;
  • panel data;
  • cointegration and aggregation;
  • the random coefficient autoregressive model;
  • predicting mortality rates.
