About

Charles Bos works at the Department of Econometrics and O.R as associate professor. Here he is committed to research on the topics of time series modelling, especially series with high frequency data and involving stochastic volatility. He is a fellow at the Tinbergen Institute.

He also teaches courses at the VU University Amsterdam, the Tinbergen Institute, and for many years at CREATES, Aarhus university.

Part of the code he implements for his research is available from these pages. The code is written in Ox. For this language, Charles at times performs consulting for Timberlake on econometric computing problems.

He obtained a PhD from the Erasmus University with a thesis on Time Varying Parameter Models for Inflation and Exchange Rates. After defending the PhD, he worked as a research officer at Nuffield College, Oxford University, and later obtained a VENI research grant from the NWO, the Dutch Science foundation.
