Dr Andreea Halunga joined the Department of Economics in March 2015 as a Senior Lecturer in Econometrics. She holds a PhD in Econometrics from University of Manchester and held positions of lectureship and senior lectureship at the University of Exeter before joining Bath.

Andreea’s main research is about misspecification/specification testing in econometric models, including panel data models.

Her work is also concerned with the asymptotic theory analysis and applications of bootstrap techniques in capturing time series changes such as changes in persistence and structural breaks.

Research interests

  • Misspecification tests in econometrics
  • Changes in persistence and structural breaks
  • Panel data methods
  • Bootstrap methods
  • Nonlinear time series modelling
