My research interests include:

  • Multivariate statistics, in particular hypothesis testing, classification and high-dimensional problems,
  • Censored data, both survival data and data with detection limits,
  • Inference for discrete distributions, such as inference about proportions or odds ratios,
  • The interplay between Bayesian and frequentist ideas,
  • Big data problems in animal science, in collaboration with researchers at Beijer Laboratory for Animal Science,
  • Applications in medicine and proteomics, most of it in collaboration with researchers at the Uppsala Berzelii Technology Centre for Neurodiagnostics.
