Mirco Rubin is Associate Professor of Econometrics at EDHEC Busienss School in Nice and holds a PhD in Economics with Finance specialization from Università della Svizzera Italiana (Lugano) and the Swiss Finance Institute. 
 
Mirco's research interests are at the intersection of Econometrics, Financial Economics, Macroeconomics, and Asset Allocation. 
He is specialized in the development of new econometric methodologies for large and mixed-frequency dataset. 
In his recent papers he employs new latent factor models to 
i) study of comovement among financial and macroeconomic data observed at different frequencies, 
ii) develop asset allocation strategies based on the expected rank, or position, of the portfolio value,
iii) forecast the European GDP exploiting higher frequency predictors and stochastic volatility.
