Reasearch Interests

Inference for Diffusion Processes under various observations regimes: Partial and noisy observations, observations on functionals. Applications to various fields: Financial/Econometric time series, ODE dynamical systems, Growth curves, Epidemic models.

Advanced MCMC methods: particle MCMC, Hamiltonian MCMC methods.

Financial Econometrics: volatility estimation from options and asset prices.

Epidemic models: Population models, time-varying parameters, structured populations.
