Research Interests  

The first part of my research focuses on the efficiency and approximation issues in Generalized Method of Moments (GMM) methods for time series and panel data in the presence of (clustered) dependence and heteroscedasticity. I develop new, more accurate, and easy-to-use approximations to the nonparametric estimator of the GMM weighting matrix. Besides the GMM context, I apply new asymptotic theory to non-stationary time series such as triangular cointegration regression and predictive quantile regression. I am also interested in financial econometrics and Bayesian econometrics theory. Here is my cv.pdf.
