Research interests

My general research interests are in macroeconomics and finance, the connections between the two, and in developing new analytical and empirical tools.

I have published papers in the following areas:

  • Macroeconomics: intertemporal macro models, real business cycle theory, the sustainability of fiscal policy, monetary policy, exchange rate models, the consumption function.
  • Finance: Bond, equity and FOREX asset pricing; strategic asset allocation, the term structure of interest rates, the behaviour of the stock market, foreign exchange markets, international CAPM, mortgage-backed securities, commodity models.
  • Econometrics : cointegration, VAR analysis, economic convergence, rational expectations, learning, estimation theory and inference. I have advised the House of Lords Economic Affairs Committee in all of their investigations since their inception: on monetary policy and globalisation.
