Research | Current

My primary research goals are directed toward understanding statistical inference and related computations in the Bayesian framework. 

My research interests include;

  • Bayesian statsitics
  • Monte Carlo methods
  • Mixtures
  • Inference using approixmations due to expensive posteiror distribuitons
  • Inverse problem
  • Application of Bayesian inference - I have worked on problems in food science, sport science and image detection.

Please see Google scholar for my publications.
