Research Interests

My primary interest lies in statistical models. Statistical models are important tools for decision making (for example making predictions). My goal is to obtain a deeper understanding of currently available statistical methods. I intend to create quality models that are generically applicable and easy to use. My research interests include in particular:

  • statistical models using convex optimization techniques (e.g., likelihood and maximum-entropy duality)
  • latent variable graphical models
  • modeling multivariate distributions
  • causality
