My main research interest is in applied time series econometrics, particularly relating to the use of Structural Time Series Models in modelling energy demand. A list of recent papers can be found here


Currently I teach the following units on the Economics undergraduate degree programme at Portsmouth

I also have a number of blogs relating to the subjects that I teach.

My office hours for this semester are To Be Announced.

Computing in Economics

My book "Computing Skills for Economists" is available from John Wiley & Sons. You might still be able to get hold of my earlier book "Quantitative Analysis for Economics and Business: Using Lotus 1-2-3" published by Harvester Wheatsheaf in 1990.

Tools and resources for economists on the Internet

Links to some of the web sites that I find most useful.

Other interests

My main non-academic interest is football. I have been a fanatical supporter of Watford Football Club since 1958. Over fifty years of loyal support!

I enjoy music of many types, but especially folk music. My favourite artists at the moment include Cara Dillon, Eliza Gilkyson, Lucy Kaplansky, and Karine Polwart.

These, and other afflictions my wife, Pauline, suffers (but not in silence!). But she does enjoy travelling, especially our regular visits to Greece and South Africa.
