Research Overview

  1. Generalized Time-Varying Parameter Model Approaches:
    I have been addressing the development of new non-stationary time series models, generalized least squares based time-varying parameter model approaches, to examine the efficient market hypothesis in modern financial markets (mainly stock markets and foreign exchange markets).
  2. Cliometric Analysis:
    I conduct joint research projects for cliometric analysis using futures markets data in prewar Japan. In particular, we investigate whether the markets are efficient employing the above generalized time-varying parameter model approaches.
