Research interests

I am interested in the development of methods  for extracting relevant information from complex data.  This data  often arise from collaborations with lab scientists.  My research in mathematical statistics  is concerned with developing such methods and tools to  equip these with statistical error control.  The challenge is to incorporate computational aspects at the same hand, an important issue in modern data science.

  • Mathematical Statistics
Statistical inverse problems, nonparametric regression, statistical imaging and signal recovery, multiscale testing and estimation,  qualitative inference,  shape analysis, optimal transport.
  • Computational Statistics
  fast segmentation algorithms, motion estimation, resampling
  • Statistics in Biophysics
Statistical methods for single molecule experiments, ion channel recordings, nanoscale fluorescence microscopy. My work on  Nanostatistics has been highlighted in the Research Features Magazine.
  • Other areas of application I have been involved include
   Clinical trials:  Bioequivalence and noninferiority trials.
   Econometrics: microstructure noise models.
   Pattern recognition: Analysis of fingerprints and biometric identification security.

In the recently founded Felix-Bernstein Institute for Mathematical Statistics in the Biosciences (FBMS)
we foster interaction of Statistics with Bio- and Lifescience.

Since 2010  I am Max-Planck-fellow heading the Statistical Inverse Problems in Biophysics group at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry.
