Other

In addition to my research in theoretical/mathematical Statistics, I have a number of collaborations with researchers in other Sciences.

  1. Application of Machine Learning Techniques to medical datasets: This is a collaboration we have started with a number of people in the Systems Immunity Research Institute in Cardiff. With Prof. Matthias Eberl (and a number of other people in his research team) we are currently co-supervising two Ph.D. students (Mrs. Oliwia Michalak and Mr. Ross Burton). The applications we are currently working on are sepsis and liver diseases.
  2. Statistics in text data analytics: We are working with Prof Irena Spasic (School of Computer Science, Cardiff University) on a number of different topics of text data analytics. We have two papers published and another one in progress.
  3. Statistics in Archaeology: I am working with Dr. Konstantinos Trimmis (Bristol University) on the statistical analysis of archaeological data collected in the Balkans region. We have already submitted a paper on the use of caves in the Balkans.

Other projects that I have been involved in the past:

  1. Machine Learning techniques in identifying interactions in schizophrenic patients: I was co-advising with Prof. Valentina Escott-Price, Dr. Timothy Vivian-Griffiths during his Ph.D. studies. We have published a paper on this work.
  2. Statistical analysis in sports data: With Dr. Dimitris Challoumas we have analyzed data on the effect of anatomical features on the performance of volleyball players. We have published two papers on this topic.
  3. Statistical analysis in dielectrophoresis: In my time at Michigan Technological University, the only collaboration that resulted in a successful publication was with Dr.Adrienne Minerick (Chemical Engineering) where we use some statistical techniques to analyze human blood typing.
