Emmanuel Sirimal Silva is a PGR student affiliated to the Business School at Bournemouth University. His primary research interest is in time series analysis and forecasting using Singular Spectrum Analysis. From September 2013 - September 2015, Emmanuel served as a P/T Lecturer in Statistics and Econometrics, and was also appointed the Leader of the BU Statistical and Mathematical Support Centre (June 2015 - September 2015).
My primary research is focused on the application and development of the Singular Spectrum Analysis technique. I have published several articles directly relating to my research interests.
