I joined the Department of Economics and Related Studies in October 2013. Prior to joining I was a Senior Research Fellow at the Centre of Financial Analysis and Policy at the University of Cambridge (2002-2013).
My research interests are mainly in panel data econometrics (testing and estimation in the presence of cross sectional dependence), Global VAR modelling, and estimation of large covariance matrices. I am also interested in financial econometrics. My work in this area includes modelling the spread of financial crises and testing for jumps and their determinants in the term structure of interest rates.
