Professor Anindya Banerjee joined the Department of Economics in January 2008 as Professor in Economics. Before coming to Birmingham he was Professor at the European University Institute in Florence and Fellow of Wadham College, Oxford. Professor Banerjee received his Ph.D. from the University of Oxford.  His interests lie in time series econometrics, including factor models, and the econometrics of integrated panel data. He has recently been using his expertise in econometric modelling to look at the use of algorithmic methods in augmenting police decision making.

Doctoral research

PhD title


Research Group:


Research Interests:  My current research interests include forecasting with large datasets and the use of factor models. Empirical issues relating to interest 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 of cross-sectional dependence for inference and estimation in such panels.  Factors constitute a convenient way of modelling dependence although alternative approaches may also be considered. I am also interested in applied problems involving data modelling and have been applying my expertise in building statistical models that can aid police decision making.
