I came to McGill University (Montreal, Canada) in August 2002 to pursue an undergraduate degree in Economics. However, upon my arrival, I decided to support my understanding of Economics with a degree in Mathematics. I thought the two would be excellent complements as I have always had a strong inclination toward understanding Economics from a strong theoretical foundation. I graduated with a joint honours BA degree in Economics and Mathematics in April 2006.
Having fallen under the spell of Montreal's charms, I decided to stay in this gorgeous city and continue my education there. In September 2006, I enrolled at McGill to pursue an M.A. degree in Economics. By this time, I had come to realize that I had strong interests to study Econometrics.
In September 2007, I enrolled at McGill University, again, to pursue a Ph.D. degree in Economics, specializing in Econometrics. Also, by this time, I had the pleasure of working as a research assistant for Prof. Russell Davidson, a brilliant professor and a wonderful man. It is through him that I was introduced to the theory of iterative bootstrapping techniques and “coincidentally” found a topic for my doctoral thesis.
My academic interests are primarily devoted to theoretical econometric methods dealing with iterative bootstrap techniques and time series analysis. My current research focuses on improving the properties of unit root tests through bootstrap and wavelet methods.
Apart from Econometrics, my research interests also extend to Macroeconomics and Money and Banking. The latter have, as of late, also given rise to a strong inclination to study financial banking and pricing options.
