Profile:

Since 1991, Dr. Dudukovic has taught a number of business courses, including Management Science, Quantitative Methods and Dynamic Forecasting, and Statistics. Her degrees include a B.S. in Technology, an M.S. in Economics and a Ph.D. in Statistics. Her long-term theoretical research interests include Non Gaussian Time Series Modeling, Entropy Maximization and Information Theory. Since 1997, her empirical research interests cover the fields of Financial Modeling, Credit Spread Modeling, Causality Testing and Stock Market Volatility Forecasting. She has published numerous publications on Non Gaussian Time Series Analysis and Volatility Forecasting, and has considerable private-sector experience in Management Information System Development. She has a particular interest in undergraduate research and is engaged in discovering the methods needed to trigger student research interest by including notions of creativity in philosophy, psychology and logic.  She established and directed Franklin's Center for Quantitative Research (CQR) with the aim of achieving results worth presenting at international conferences.  She is a member of the Bernoulli Society for Mathematical Statistics, the American Statistical Association, and the IEEC Computer Society.
