Structural Breaks in Capital Market Data (with Michael Karoglou,University of Aston)This project tests for structural breaks in time series data with applications to capital markets.

Stock Market Co-movement, Volatility and Predictability (with Winston Moore, University of the West Indies)This project focuses on testing for co-movement of equity prices, especially among developed western stock markets and those emerging equity markets in Central and Eastern Europe that have been admitted to the EU. We are also investigating stockmarket volatility among Central and Eastern European equity markets. The final strand of our research investigates predictability of stock market returns.
