My research interests are mainly focused on Bayesian inference (parametric and nonparametric), with emphasis on modelling and computational aspects. One of the topic I am currently working on is mixture models where location parameters are a priori encouraged to be well separated, also incorporating covariate information in the likelihood and in the assignment to mixture components; this yields a trade-off between repulsiveness of locations in the mixtures and attraction among subjects with similar covariates. From the application point of view, my work concerns statistics for Medicine (e.g. recurrent events related to hearth failures, survival after an infarction), Health care management (e.g. home care providers, recurrent blood donations), Biology (e.g. SNP's data) and Engineering (e.g. topic modelling); see the list of my papers.
