Areas of Interest

  • Statistical inference
  • Mathematical statistics


A fundamental concern of a theory of statistical inference is how statistical evidence is to be measured. A main theme of my research is concerned with providing such a definition, together with the theory of inference that follows from this and with its application to solve particular statistical problems. Another theme of my research is concerned with developing methodology to resolve issues inherent with subjective choices in statistics through elicitation, controlling for induced biases, model checking and checking for prior-data conflict.
