Biography

Pouliot’s research looks at different areas of econometrics as it relates to testing of parameter stability in regression and risk models; in particular this research applies theories of weak convergence to establish limiting distributions of test statistics that are used to test for parameter stability in these models.    His research also looks at the role uncertainty plays in OLG models and how it can affect first best outcomes; his research shows that uncertainty can lead to multiple steady states and can impact household’s decisions in such a way that the first best outcome is no longer attainable.
