I have developed a special interest in the field of regime switching model, especially Markov regime switching applied to price and return models and I am very interested in the whole area of empirical asset pricing. I want to broaden the application of regime switching models in the whole field of finance exploring their role and implications in unsurveyed areas of the discipline.
