Profile information

Organisation profile

The Applied Econometrics and Finance group brings together researchers active in various economic disciplines within the School, with a wide range of research interests.  The research areas include, Financial Econometrics, Macroeconomics, Development Economics, Economic Growth, Banking Economics, Environmental and Resource Economics, Labour and Population Economics, and several more.

A key focus of the research group is on collaboration with researchers from other disciplines to encourage the fertilisation of ideas and reflect the diversity of the potential impact of our research.  The research group has particularly close links to researchers in the Norwich Business School , the School of International Development, and the Health Economics Group within the School of Medicine.

The dominant theme of the research group is research in financial econometrics and macroeconomics, with group members Peter Moffatt, Arnold Polanski, Alasdair Brown, Fuyu Yang, Marta Wisniewska and Bahar Ghezelayagh recently being joined by Martin Bruns, Gustavo Fruet Dias and Andrea Calef.

Research of this group is regularly presented in two seminar series: Applied and Financial Economics workshops and Accounting Finance and Governance workshops (the latter jointly with Norwich Business School).

Our expertise links creatively in media economics through the media@UEA group. We are active in the Centre for Copyright and New Business Models in the Creative Economy (CREATe), an RCUK interdisciplinary research centre helping UK cultural and creative industries become innovation leaders within the global digital economy.

Our researchers work in partnership with organisations including the British Horse Racing AuthorityBritish Medical Associations, Defra, the European Commission Directorate-General for Research, Norwich City Football Club, the supermarket chain Sainsbury's, Anglian Water and Archant.

The School of Economics will also be prioritising a PGR studentship for research in the area of Applied Econometrics and Finance.  Members of this Research Group have identified two particular research areas in which they are particularly keen to attract applicants.  These areas are: The Econometrics of Cryptocurrencies and Consumer Attitudes to Environmental Degradation.
