  • Bayesian model comparison
  • Stochastic volatility models

Joshua Chan received his Ph.D. from the University of Queensland in 2010. His long-term research focuses on inflation modeling, output gap estimation, model comparison and nonlinear state space models. 

His current research is supported by the Australian Research Council via a Discovery Early Career Researcher Award. The funded project aims at developing new nonlinear time-varying macroeconometric models with an emphasis on understanding the impact of uncertainty on business cycles.

His research has appeared in Journal of Econometrics, Journal of Business and Economic Statistics, and Journal of Applied Econometrics, among others.
