The Economic Modelling and Forecasting (EMF) group's main research interests are the theory and practice of economic modelling and forecasting, with an applied macroeconomics emphasis. The EMF group also has an energy-based research agenda based around the Global Energy Research Network.

We are now part of the Macroeconomic Policy and Forecasting Network within the WBS Finance Group. See our updated details here.

The group's members regularly publish in leading academic journals; undertake research council and central bank funded projects; and collaborate with, advise and develop software with central banks and international organisations.

The group contributes to the delivery of a wide range of economics and econometrics based modules at the undergraduate, MBA and Ph.D. level. The group teach a number of modules on the Global Energy MBA. See details here.

With a view to communicating and disseminating research of relevance to the public the group produce quarterly density and probability event forecasts for UK GDP growth and CPI inflation; and have developed a MATLAB toolbox for probabilistic forecasting – PROFOR.
