I am interested in nonparametric methods, nonlinear time series analysis, and applications to large, complex datasets thereof. My current research studies asymptotic properties of infinite-dimensional nonparametric time series regression models.






I am interested in theoretical and applied high-dimensional econometrics. At the moment, I am looking at high-dimensional panel data models. 





My research interests are in financial econometrics, with a focus on nonparametric methods to model risk and dependency in asset prices and their derivatives. Currently I am working on estimating the state-price density using high frequency options data.




Alexis De Boeck

My interest are very broad in theoretical econometrics. Currently, I am looking into methods to conduct inference in point and partially identified nonseparable models.




My primary research interest is financial econometrics.  In one paper I address the issue of inefficient information use in GARCH models, namely that GARCH-type models do not incorporate current information in their modelling. I propose a new model which incorporates also current information. I show that my model improves the precision of both short-run and long-run volatility forecast, as well as providing a conceptual link between GARCH and Stochastic Volatility models. Extending upon this, I develop an asymptotics theory for the QMLE of this new model, which can be seen as a generalization of the asymptotic theory for the QMLE of the standard GARCH (1,1) model.

My interests are applied non-parametric methods, I am considering combining non-parametric methods and machine learning to do forecasting in financial market.





Ondrej Tobek
My research focuses on market micro-structure and empirical asset pricing. I am researching impacts of liquidity on stock prices and low-frequency measures of liquidity using trading volume.
