Research Interest

The research I am currently involved in covers the following two topics: (1). the modeling of realized volatility, which is the sum of squared intraday returns over a certain interval such as a day, in the Japanese stock market and its application to the prediction of future volatility, the option pricing and VaR; (2). the application of Support Vector Machine methods to the volatility modeling and forecasting. Recently I am engaged in modeling the volatility of Dhaka stock market index and its application to the prediction of future volatility, the option pricing and VaR by applying Support Vector Machine methods in GARCH type models along with ordinary GARCH type models. I am also engaged in assessing students’ attitude toward learning in higher education. My previous research area was regression diagnostics and time series analysis.
