About Me

I am a Professor of Economics and the Associate Dean (Research) of the Business School at the University of New South Wales in Australia (click here for my university webpage and here for a pdf of my full CV).

I teach macroeconomics, finance, and econometrics. My research involves using 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?
