Dr. Safi interests are in Time Series Analysis, Regression Analysis, and Econometrics. He has worked on computer simulations of time series models to determine the efficiency of ANNs in the presence of auto-correlated disturbances, he considers the robustness of various models, including Autoregressive Integrated Moving Average (ARIMA) and Regression models. Currently, Dr. Safi is working on a mixed data sampling (MIDAS) regression model with multiple variables of different frequencies, including the model selection based on information criterion and obtaining a forecast aggregation of different MIDAS regression models.

Dr. Safi has published several papers in reputable international journals concerning the efficiency of Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) for forecasting in the presence of autocorrelated disturbances and compared ANNs with traditional forecasting techniques.

Dr. Safi was granted the best paper award at the 4th International Conference on Business and Technology (ICBT’2023), Istanbul, Turkey on Nov. 2, 2023.
