My research is in the area of stochastic modeling and statistical analysis
of biological processes, and comprises development, assessment and application
of statistical models and tools. My main interest is in modeling
cellular and genetic networks with a special focus on neuroscience applications.
I use mathematical models ranging from (non)linear regression, Markov and
hidden Markov models to non-Markovian counting processes, and frequentist as
well as Bayesian estimation techniques.
Current research projects
