  • Professor Peter C. B. Phillips

    Professor Peter Phillips (Yale)

    Peter C. B. Phillips is Sterling Professor of Economics and Professor of Statistics at Yale.

    His contributions have revolutionized econometric practice with non-stationary data and the empirical treatment of trends, influencing research throughout the social and business sciences where such data are ubiquitous. His work includes an econometric analysis of the recent financial and sovereign debt crises, which has led to a new warning alert system that is now being used by surveillance teams in central banks as a real time detector of exuberance in financial and real estate markets.

    Phillips is founder and editor of the journal Econometric Theory and founding editor of Themes in Modern Econometrics for Cambridge University Press.
