First Name: Søren
Second name: Johansen
Academic title: Professor

Place of employment: Department of Economics, University of Copenhagen, Denmark
Position: Professor of Econometrics

1967 - Ph.D.: University of Copenhagen
1964 - MSc (mathematical statistics): University of Copenhagen

Research interests:
I have worked with mathematical statistics and probability theory as well as medical statistics
and since 1983 with econometrics, in particular the theory of cointegration.
In 1987-90 I was the director of a project on "Statistical method and their application on models
for the …nancial sector in Denmark" with the support of the Danish Social Sciences Research
In 1990-93 I have participated in a Nordic project "Monetary disequilibrium: An economic
model analysis of monetary phenomena in the Nordic Countries", with Katarina Juselius as director
and with the support of Nordic Research Council for the Social Sciences. The purpose was to
develop and apply statistical methods for the analysis of economic time series, in particular the
method of cointegration.
In 1993-1998 I have had a grant from the Research Council for Social Sciences and the Research
Council for the Natural Sciences with the title "Analysis of non-stationary time series - statisti-
cal methodology and econometric applications". Since 1998 I have participated in the program
"Macroeconomic transmissions mechanisms. Empirical applications and econometric methods",
and "Imperfect knowledge, structural change, ppp puzzle, long swings puzzle, and exchange rate
disconnect puzzle" …nanced by the Danish Research Council for Social Sciences. I was a member
of the steering committee of the ESF network on "Econometric Methods for the Modelling of Non-
stationary Data, Policy Analysis and Forecasting" 2002- 2004. Recently I have participated in the
research project under the heading of Anders Rahbek "Nonlinear multivariate econometric time
series analysis with applications to nonlinear cointegration and volatility".
