  • My main body of research belongs broadly to industrial statistics. In particular, I like to address problems in engineering and technology using stochastic modelling tools, with a preference for Markov and point processes.  My main contributions can be found in the application of stochastic modelling to reliability and to electrical power systems. As far as statistical inference is concerned, I have often followed the Bayesian approach, but I also like the frequentist approach, depending on which one is more effective for the problem at hand.
