My research mainly focuses on the efficiency and approximation issues in Generalized Method of Moments (GMM) methods for economic data in the presence dependence and heteroscedasticity. I develop new, more accurate, and easy-to-use approximations to the nonparametric estimator of GMM weighting matrix. Besides the GMM context, I also apply the idea of new asymptotics to other modern econometric models such as triangular cointegration regression and long-horizon predictive regression. I am also interested in applied econometrics, financial econometrics, and Bayesian econometrics. Here is my cv.
