Research Interests
  • Simultaneous inference (including variable/model selection and multiple comparison) with applications in biology and pharmaceutical science
  • Latent variable models for high-dimensional data with applications in genomics and signal processing
  • Analysis of non-Euclidean data (such as networks, shapes, images and tensors)
  • Spectra of random matrices (including those of sample auto-correlation/auto-covariance matrices) with applications to inference on high-dimensional data
  • Statistical inference on stochastic differential equations (including those driven by fractional Brownian motions) with applications in finance, biology and geology
