Research Interests

I am interested in statistical models that summarize data. Good statistical models are important tools for decision making, casting predictions and inferring reason. My goal is to obtain a deeper understanding of currently available statistical methods and then to extend them. 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
  • modelling multivariate distributions
  • causality
