Giuseppe STORTI Curriculum

Since January 2004 Giuseppe Storti has been Associate Professor of Economic Statistics at the University of Salerno, Department of Economic and Statistical Sciences. He has been Assistant Professor of Economic Statistics since February 2001 up to December 2003.
In 1995 he took a Laurea in Economics (cum laude) at the University of Salerno, in 1997 he was awarded a Master of Science in Environmental Statistics and Systems by the University of Lancaster (with Distinction), in 1999 he took a PhD in Statistics at the University of Chieti "G. d.Annunzio". His main research interests are related to the analysis of financial time series.
He has published several papers on this topic in international journals such as Journal of Forecasting, Computational Statistics & Data Analysis, Computational Statistics, Studies in Nonlinear Dynamics and Econometrics and Statistical Methods and Applications. He has refereed papers for many top level international journals such as Computational Statistics & Data Analysis, Journal of Financial Econometrics and Journal of Applied Econometrics.
