Robinson Kruse

Robinson Kruse is an Associate Professor for Financial Econometrics at the University of Cologne. Before taking up this position, he was employed as an assistant professor at Rijksuniversiteit Groningen and Leibniz University Hannover. He has been a postdoctoral fellow at CREATES from August 2008 - July 2011. His research interests in the field of time series econometrics include long memory processes, structural breaks, forecasting, non-linearities and unit roots.
