Mathematical and Applied Statistics, Dependence models and Copulas, Algebraic Statistics, Optimal experimental design.
My research spans from mathematical statistics to applied statistics. I am mainly interested in multivariate statistics and dependence modeling, with particular emphasis on copulas and their geometric properties. My work includes the development of copula-based approaches used in optimal experimental design and environmental sciences such as hydrology and weather forecasting. Prior to joining UMass Lowell, I was a postdoc at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology as the principal investigator of the project 'Geometry of discrete copulas for weather forecasting', funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF).
