My research interests are in applications of statistics in Health (e.g. Survival Analysis) and Wealth (e.g. Financial Statistics). Together with graduate students and collaborators, both Canadian and International, I am exploring novel models for survival of individuals both in clinical settings and for observational data. Many of these models can also be applied to reliability engineering and finance. I am currently interested and active in exploring extensions of these models to Big Data, which presents major computational and theoretical challenges.
