Spatial and spatio-temporal statistics, stochastic geometry and imaging

The group conducts research in stochastic geometry, spatial and spatio-temporal statistics, and imaging.

The members of the group work on developing theory and applications of general classes of spatio- temporal models, including non-stationary and non-Gaussian processes, and on statistical estimation and algorithms for these processes. Application areas include biology, climate, demography, forestry, offshore operations and sea transports, materials science, neurology and telecommunications.
