George Kapetanios

George Kapetanios is a Professor in the School of Economics and Finance, Queen Mary University of London. He works in the area of econometrics and macroeconomics. In the area of econometrics he is interested in (i) the analysis of nonlinear econometric models, (ii) nonlinear unit root tests, (iii) factor and other models for large datasets (iv) model selection (v) tests of rank (vi) tests of nonlinearity, (vii) econometric forecasting and (vii) modelling under structural change. He has developed unit root tests that are powerful against nonlinear stationary processes for a variety of nonlinear alternative hypotheses. He has developed new tests for nonlinearity with very favourable size and power properties. He has proposed a new methodology for estimating factors from large datasets using state space models. In the area of macroeconomics he has investigated the persistence properties of a number of macroeconomics series and used state space and nonlinear models to forecast GDP and other macroeconomic variables for Europe and the US.

Web Developers

Xueke Lu

Xueke Lu is a PhD student in Queen Mary University of London, Electronic Engineering and Computer Science Department. Her PhD topic is about using networks to exploit ecosystem persistence and robustness from cross-discipline aspect. Her research interests include how climate change would affect food web structure and functionality, how food web self-organization properties help re-structure the network thus preserve network robustness. Apart from that, she is also good at web development and iOS App development.
