Read more about our research in econometrics.


Our department conducts research in econometric theory and its applications. This includes hypothesis and misspecification testing, with a particular focus on time-series econometrics and related areas of finance and international macroeconomics. Our theoretical research thrives from having strong links with the macroeconomics and environmental research areas, as well as with researchers outside of the department in Statistics and Manchester Alliance Business School.
