Within financial econometrics he is interested in high-frequency trading data and in low frequency panel data issues.
His research interests are nonparametric and semiparametric methods, particularly as applied to bandwidth choice and to efficiency comparisons between first order equivalent procedures, leading to examination of practical problems such as how to choose bandwidth, the curse of dimensionality, and how to obtain good approximations to the actual sampling variability of the estimators. He is also interested in financial econometrics.
