The project will make developments to generalize the semi-parametric time-series modelling framework given in Fung & Huang (2015) to a multivariate setting for handling vector-valued time series. This will mainly focus on count time-series data. Firstly, extensive background reading will be performed before tackling computation, estimation and simulation of semi-parametric bivariate time-series models. The project will then move on to exploring methods for handling higher-dimensional multivariate time series and extending the relevant software packages to do so.
