Among his contributions to econometric theory are non-parametric theory (Econometrica, 1992, Economics Letters, 1994, Journal of Quantitative Economics, 1994), nested Tobit model (Economic Letters, 1992, Review of Economics and Statistics, 1995) and the handling of missing observations (Applied Economics Letters, 1998, Oxford Bulletin of Economics and Statistics, 2000).
