I teach macroeconomics, finance, and econometrics. My research uses statistical analysis to gain insights into a number of empirical issues in economics, including the following:
Are business cycle fluctuations symmetric? What are their sources and economic implications?
What is the nature of structural change in macroeconomic relationships? Is it gradual or abrupt?
What are the sources of persistent changes in the unemployment rate?
How does stock market volatility affect expected returns in the stock market?
Why are exchange rates so volatile and persistent?

Heather Anderson, Renée Fry-McKibbin, and I guest-edited a special issue of The Economic Record dedicated to the memory of Mardi Dungey. Mardi was an inspiration as an economist and as a wonderful person. She is deeply missed by all who knew her.
