Professor Gonzalez-Rivera received her Ph.D. from the University of California San Diego where she wrote her dissertation under the supervision of 2003 Nobel Laureate Professor Robert F. Engle. Her research focuses on the development of econometric and forecasting methodology with applications in financial markets, volatility forecasting, risk management, and agricultural markets. Her research has been published in top venues such as Journal of Econometrics, Journal of Business and Economic Statistics, Journal of Applied Econometrics, International Journal of Forecasting, and the Handbook of Empirical Economics and Finance, among others. She has also written a textbook in forecasting, Forecasting for Economics and Business, published by Pearson/Addison-Wesley, which has received great reviews.
