Research Interests

My research interests include spatial and spatio-temporal statistics, Bayesian methods, and forecasting. This entails, in particular, Bayesian inference and model selection procedures for point process models as well as methods for probabilistic forecasting and forecast verification. My work mainly focuses on applications in the environmental sciences, especially climatology, hydrology and atmospheric sciences.
