An Emerging Leader in Economics Research
In October 2012, Morten Nielsen, Professor of Economics and Stephen J. R. Smith Faculty Fellow, was named the Tier 2 Canada Research Chair (CRC) in Time Series Econometrics. Tier 2 Chairs are recognized as emerging leaders in their research areas and receive $100,000 per year for five years from the CRC program.
Dr. Nielsen’s research develops new statistical methods for analyzing time-series data. Such methods are widely used in applied macroeconomics, financial economics, and many other fields.
