Research Interests

My main research interests range across the theory and methodology of Bayesian procedures in complex high- and infinite-dimensional statistical models. My current research areas are:

  • frequentist analysis of Bayesian nonparametric procedures
  • statistical inverse problems
  • inference for diffusion processes
  • inference for counting processes
  • inference on manifolds
