Main interests

My current research activity concerns the development and implementation of statistical modelling and inferential approaches for relational data in a wide variety of applications involving interdisciplinary collaborations.

My research interests include (but are not limited to):

I am always happy to hear from students who would like to do a postgraduate research project with me, fellow researchers who would like to collaborate on proposals, and industry seeking to collaborate on a research project with commercialisation focus. Please contact me. For students, please also see information on funding options.
