epidemiology; spatial statistics


My research interests lie in the area of spatial and environmental statistics, and in particular, spatio-environmental epidemiology. This area includes disease mapping, ecological analysis, and the analysis of clustering of disease. I also have interests in other areas of epidemiology, directional data analysis, and object recognition from imaging and geostatistical estimation of random fields with applications in geology, geosciences and medical science.

I am a WHO advisor in Disease Mapping and Risk Assessment, and have a wide range of publications in this area.
