Research Interests

Bayesian applications to data analysis, multivariate methods, machine learning, kernel methods, variable selection, statistical computing, data visualization, survey data.

Research Interests

My research interests lie in applying Bayesian methods of statistical inference to analyze data of complex structure that arise in a variety of applications. In particular, I am interested in Bayesian modelling of classification problems in data with large feature spaces. For me, the most interesting aspects of modelling high-dimensional data are feature selection and model visualization and interpretability.
