Ghysels is a time series econometrician with particular interest in empirical asset pricing. He has published in leading economics, finance and statistics academic journals. His most recent research focuses on Mixed data sampling regression models and filtering methods with applications in finance and other fields. He has also worked on diverse topics such as seasonality in economic times series, Generalized Method of Moment estimation and testing of asset pricing models, time varying betas, estimation of risk neutral and objective probability measures for the purpose of option pricing, among many other topics.

He has published several books, including a monograph with Denise Osborn (University of Manchester) on the Econometric Analysis of Seasonal Time Series.

He is a fellow of the American Statistical Association and co-editor of the Journal of Financial Econometrics.

The Society for Financial Econometrics (SoFiE) was co-founded by Robert Engle and Eric Ghysels.

His recent work includes regression models and filtering using data sampled at different frequencies. Recent work on Mixed data sampling (MIDAS) includes:
