Experts in: Financial econometrics
Marine Carrasco graduated with a PhD from University of Toulouse (France). She taught at Ohio State University and Rochester University (USA). She has also been a researcher at CREST (INSEE, France). She joined our department in December 2005.
Her research interests focus on two main topics. First, she is interested in tests for parameter stability and their applications in macroeconomics and finance. Second, she is working on inverse problems and their applications to econometrics. In particular, she is studying the generalized method of moments when there is an infinite number of moment conditions.
William McCausland earned his PhD from the University of Minnesota in 2002, and then joined the Department of Economics at the Université de Montréal. He is currently conducting research into the application of Bayesian econometrics in analyzing time series in economics and finance, demand by consumers and companies, discrete choices in experiments and subjects' behaviour in repeated game experiments.

Benoit Perron earned his PhD in Economics from Yale University in 1998, and joined the Université de Montréal Department of Economics that same year.
He is a researcher with the Centre interuniversitaire de recherche en économie quantitative (CIREQ) and the Centre for Interuniversity Research and Analysis on Organizations (CIRANO).
His research concerns time series econometrics. More specifically, he is working on developing panel unit root tests and on the long-run properties of financial returns.
