Research

Research in Accounting and finance is focused around the areas of Accounting Practice and Theory, Organisational and Accounting Change, Accounting Education, Corporate Governance, Financial Markets, and Corporate Finance.

 
The Finance research group has strengths in applied finance, particularly in the areas of high frequency analysis, (focusing on volatility, derivatives and regulation) and asset pricing with particular emphasis on the integration between macroeconomic variables and asset prices). There are additional research interests in corporate finance, initial public offerings and privatised utilities. The finance group has strong links with both economics and accountancy, using cross-disciplinary methodologies to address relevant issues in finance. There is also a strong interface with the real estate group where shared interests yield research output in the areas of risk measurement and diversification benefits.

Our subscriptions include Thomson Reuters Eikon, Datastream Premium, Worldscope, Morningstar Encorr, Newscope, Lipper Tass, TickHistory which, along with software packages such as Matlab, Eviews, RATS, and Stata, enables us to produce leading quantitative research at the cutting edge of finance. The Real Estate research group has a strong track record of interdisciplinary research in the area of property investment and property market analysis. The Centre for Real Estate Research (CRER) acts as a focus for interdisciplinary research in the area of real estate investment and property market analysis. There is close collaboration with the Aberdeen Centre for Environmental Sustainability and the Institute for Rural Research. 

The Department's Research Convenors are Dr Chandana Alawattage (Accountancy and Finance) and Dr Rainer Schulz (Real Estate)

Research
The Economics Department has a well-established tradition of research in applied economics, particularly in the areas of labour economics and energy economics. There are also research interests in macroeconomics, the economics of health and wellbeing, and experimental economics. There are especially strong links between the Economics Department and Health Economics Research Unit, one of the leading centres in health economics in Europe. The Department's Research Convenor is Professor Catia Montagna.

The Department of Economics is also home to the Scottish Experimental Economics Laboratory (SEEL), the Centre for European Labour Market Research (CELMR), and the
Aberdeen Centre for Research in Energy Economics and Finance (ACREEF).

In February 2014, the department established EPAKE: the Economics Policy and Knowledge Exchange Steering Committee. The aim of this committee is to facilitate inter- and multi- disciplinary research collaborations with other parts of the university, increase impact and generate grant income. Its primary function is as a point of contact for other parts of the university when they seek economics input, and to build research capacity. Please feel free to contact us if you are seeking Economics input to your project.
