Research

Research Group:

Econometrics

Research Interests:  My current research interests include forecasting with large datasets and the use of factor models. Empirical issues relating tointerest rate and exchange rate pass-through are addressed within this framework, and in recent years I have worked on factor models with structural change. I also study the econometrics of non-stationary  panel data, with particular attention to the implications ofcross-sectional dependence for inference and estimation in such panels.  Factors constitute a convenient way of modelling dependence although alternative approaches may also be considered.
