Research interests

My research focus is on detection and attribution of extreme events using statistical tools. I am also interested in spatio-temporal trend detection using nonparametric methods.

I am involved in the EU-funded project eXtreme events: Artificial Intelligence for Detection and Attribution (XAIDA).
