About me

I am Professor of Econometrics at the School of Economics at the University of Nottingham, where I am also director of the Granger Centre for Time Series Econometrics.

More stuff can be found in my CV.

Research interests

Broadly speaking, I work in the fields of econometric theory and statistics. Pretty much all my contributions contain a generous amount of asymptotic theory, sometimes using weak convergence, sometimes stronger modes (chiefly, almost sure convergence).

Over the years, I have touched upon the following areas (listed in no particular order):

  • large factor models;

  • randomised tests;

  • the change point problem;

  • panel data;

  • cointegration and aggregation;

  • the random coefficient autoregressive model;

  • predicting mortality rates.
