Time-series econometrics

Theme image for the research group Time-series econometrics

The group is interested in theoretical and methodological developments in econometrics and statistics, with particular emphasis on applications in macroeconomics and finance. The research interests of the group include estimation, inference and testing in non-linear models, fractional integration, semi-parametric and non-parametric methods, real time monitoring, explosive processes and forecasting. The group organises an annual workshop in econometrics, and aims to build research networks and partnerships both in the UK and internationally.

Upcoming events

Workshop on contributions in theoretical and applied time series econometrics:

The Sheffield Time Series Econometrics Research Group will host their second annual workshop in May 2023 on “Contributions in theoretical and applied time series econometrics”, sponsored by the Royal Economic Society. The workshop will bring together leading researchers, from the UK and internationally, with expertise in a diverse set of research topics within the field of time series econometrics. Registration for the event is free and open to all.

Previous events

Advances in Econometrics Workshop:

The Sheffield Time Series Econometrics Research Group held its inaugural Advances in Econometrics Workshop on 24 May 2022, sponsored by the Royal Economic Society. The workshop promoted recent advances in econometrics and their applications in finance and economics. The event included six presentations on a diverse set of research topics within the field, with the keynote speech given by Professor Frank Windmeijer (University of Oxford).
