Research Interests

My research interest include modelling on spatio-temporal non-gaussian data. The special focus is in count data (often epidemiological-based data). Further, I am interested in non-parametric estimation methods such a partial least squares path modeling as a tool for structural equation models estimation. Here I focus my attention to some under research problems: robustness of the method, mutual causality and clustering of models.
