Petter Mostad's main focus of interest is Bayesian statistics. He has worked with a number of application areas, such as forensic genetics, forensic statistics, and biostatistics/bioinformatics, and earlier also within geostatistics. A particular area of work is likelihood computations for pedigrees, which are used for example in paternity DNA testing. He has co-published the free software Familias, and also several R packages.

Petter Mostad is since July 2012 director of studies for mathematical statistics at Chalmers and at University of Gothenburg.
