My current research interests lie in Bayesian statistics and probabilistic machine learning. Probabilistic modelling provides a framework for understanding what learning is, and has therefore emerged as one of the main theoretical and practical methodologies for designing machines that learn from data. My research on this topic focuses on nonparametric models, decision making under uncertainty, and reliability and risk analysis. I am also interested in control theory, signal processing, and the foundation of rationality theories including probability and quantum theory. I have 15 years experience in developing statistical models and AI-based systems for industry with applications to smart manufacturing, quantitative finance, green energy production forecast and defense sector.
