Staff Profile:Dr Reason Machete
- Liaison Officer between the Centre for the Mathematics of Human Behaviour and the Digital Economy Horizon Hub at the University of Nottingham
- Areas of Interest:
- At the heart of my research is an earnest desire to bridge the gap between fact and fiction and highlight the role of model error in the forecasting of non-linear systems. The approach is inter-disciplinary, the methods are mathematically sound, but fiction is very much abhorred. Broadly speaking, my interests span the following areas and applications: Nonlinear Dynamics and Chaos, Probabilistic Forecasting and Forecast Evaluation, Nonlinear Time Series Analysis, Weather Forecasting, Macroeconomic Forecasting.
