Students are welcome to contact me via email and consult the supervision of Master theses related to fields of my research interest. Maximum load of supervised theses is around 2 for 2020/2021: - simulation-based estimation methods in financial- and macro-econometrics (simulated MLE, simulated MM, analysis of performance, comparison), check some articles here or here - topics on Heterogeneous Agent Modelling in finance, e.g. calibration and estimation (SMM, SMLE) of HAMs, see a video about the HAM topic, also check a nice article here - analysis, calibration, or estimation (SMM, SMLE) of a Behavioural New Keynesian model, see a video about the macroeconomic ABM topic, read this article for more inspiration about bounded rationality in macro, or this textbook, or these nice papers (EER 2019, EER 2020) - an advanced empirical analysis of selected Behavioral Finance topics, read about interesting behavioural patterns and anomalies here. Are these patters still detectable today? Are they detectable at other markets than where discovered? Can one reasonably profit on this knowledge?
