Research fields

My current main research focuses on the statistical analysis and modeling of medical data including longitudinal, time series and 3D data such as shapes of 3D objects.

This context includes developing and application of methods including generalized linear models and reasonable object parameterization as much as working with nonlinear high dimension low sample size data. This open a wide area for new nonlinear statistical approaches to perform similar techniques like Principal Component Analysis (PCA) and Distance Weighted Discrimination (DWD) on manifolds.
