I am Professor of Statistics at Graz University of Technology. I am also affiliated to Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB).

My general research areas are statistics and probability theory. Recently I have been working in the area called “functional data analysis”. This is a statistical discipline in which the objective is to analyse data which are curves or surfaces. When such functional data are collected sequentially and there is dependence between the observations, then we call this a functional time series. The focus of my research is studying and modeling the dynamics of such functional time series.
