Research Interests: Research interests include: spatial and spatiotemporal statistical modelling, multivariate time series analysis, econometric models and statistical estimators, stochastic frontier models and machine learning in applied domains of banking, airport industry, urban road traffic, public transport, venture markets, and environmental management.

Project Type: Applied

Main Challenge:

Efficiency of economic and technical units is a key indicators in the modern competitive economics. Depending on the complexity of analyzed phenomena, evaluation of efficiency and discovering the affecting factors could be a complicated research problem. We are experienced in application of modern data-driven techniques (stochastic frontier models, data envelopment analysis) of efficiency estimation. We successfully applied these techniques for evaluation of economic and technical efficiency in the banking industry, airport industry, railways, and communications.
