My general research interest is in the science of data, Data Science. Data and models - measurement and description of phenomena - they have been the foundation of modern sciences. For the several years my research activities lie on the intersection of statistics and subject matter sciences, with a particular focus on environmental/ecological sciences. My research concerns how statistical consideration contributes to advancing our knowledge and understanding of phenomena of interest.
