Applied Econometrics And Finance

Organisational unit: Research Group

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. A key focus of our research 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 covers a wide range of subjects, some closely related to research in the Norwich Business School and in the School of International Development. It reflects the establishment of a core in financial economics, with Professor Peter Moffatt now joined by Arnold Polanski, Alasdair Brown, Bahar Ghezelayagh.

In Finance and Financial Econometrics, research topics include experimental finance, Bayesian inference, risk measures, microfinance and the non-formal financial sector. Research in Applied Microeconomics is currently studying innovation, adoption and diffusion of health care technologies, valuation of new pharmaceutical products, economics of sport and leisure, media economics and efficiency and productivity analysis.

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 with health research at Norwich Medical School's Behaviour and Health Research Unit (BHRU) (a collaboration between the University of Cambridge, RAND Europe and UEA) and 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.
