Research interests

I am interested in all areas of computational statistics, probability and stochastic processes. Some topics I have worked on are the following:

numerical solution of SPDEs

MCMC methods, in particular in infinite dimensional spaces

Approximate Bayesian Computation (ABC)

a parameter estimation problem in psychology

probability distributions on the torus

large deviations for diffusion processes
