Personal profile


I work in the areas of forecasting, machine learning, modelling of volatility, and the identification of structural/causal models. Over the last two years I have worked on a number of forecasting projects, incorporating machine learning methods into time series forecasts.

I have published 28 refereed journal articles since 2005, including five A* and nine A ranked publications, according to the 2019 Australian Business Deans Council (ABDC) journal quality List. As part of my recent work I investigate identification issues in structural econometric models within various macroeconomic and finance applications. This has led to a number of publications in top journals such as the Journal of Business and Economic Statistics (A*), Journal of Econometrics (A*), Journal of Economic Dynamics and Control (A*), and the Journal of Banking and Finance (A*). I also work in the area of real estate economics and have published six journal articles on that topic. In my early research I focused on modelling and forecasting asset returns and volatilities. Hence, most of that research was published in various finance journals such as Journal of Banking and Finance (A*) and Journal of Financial Research (A).

According to Google scholar my h-index is 14 and my i10-index is 15. In total I have had 796 citations, with the most successful publication being a paper titled “Explaining House prices in Australia: 1970 – 2003” with 215 citations, which was published in Economic Record (ABDC: A rank). My second-best paper has 66 citations and was published in Journal of Banking and Finance.

I have obtained research grants from top funding bodies. For instance, I have been successful as a Chief Investigator on two ARC Discovery Projects – DP120102239 and DP190102049. Outcomes of those projects have been awarded prizes at conferences and by academic journals. I have also had a number of smaller research grants secured from other sources.

The ordering of author names in my publications is typically alphabetical, as is common in the field of economics and does not represent author contributions. In joint work with research students, the student names are often listed first.
