Based on mathematical theory and data analysis methods, my research aims to explore statistical methods, models and optimal algorithms to deal with challenges in:
- New regression models and methods, including quantile regression, for Financial Econometrics and Business.
- Robust algorithms for Machine Learnign and Deep Learning.
- Statistical analysis and Machine learning for modelling loneliness and social isolation in Gerontology.
- New distributional/regression methods for the analysis of Wellbeing, health and biomedical scoences, such as obesity.
- Statistics/Machine learning methods for risk assessment in engineering, such as rail truck failure, cable fault, pipeline corrosion and wind turbine.
- Statistical theory, method, including Bayesian analysis, for the analysis of big data and small data.
