Research Interests

M. Hashem Pesaran has made significant contributions in time series and panel data econometrics. He is the developer of the Global Vector Autoregressive (GVAR) approach used extensively by many economists and international institutions, including IMF, ECB and the World Bank to study and predict international spillover effects and interdependencies in the global economy. By inventing this model, Pesaran has helped in transforming our understanding of interconnectedness of international financial systems and global risk taking.
