Research consultant

I have supervised students in statistics (time series analysis and multivariate analysis in particular) and econometrics since 1982.

I have assisted colleagues from several universities from the world with their research papers, PhD and Master theses. I helped them to use appropriate research methodologies, statistical methods and computing techniques. My contribution to their research was significant and acknowledged in the published papers.

I have acted as consultant to doctoral, post-graduate and undergraduate students from New Zealand, Serbia, Romania, Malaysia, U.S.A., Macedonia, Italy, Nigeria, Ukraine, Qatar and Bosnia & Herzegovina regarding statistical methods and computing. Here are some of the research topics I've been consulted on in the past 5 years:
