Research Interests

Statistics, Fiducial Inference, and Stochastic Processes.

Research Synopsis

During my career, I developed rather diverse research interests in data science, theoretical statistics and probability. In particular there are four major areas in which I have made multiple contributions: generalized fiducial inference, methodology and theory for data integration, analytical probability and application to engineering, finance, genomics, and forensic science.
