Research Interests

My research interests are in the area of Probability Theory and Mathematical Statistics. More precisely in.

  • Large Deviations Theory: asymptotic computation of “small” probabilities of exponential scale. Generalization of the theory in the case of exchangeable sequences of  r.v.s.
  • Stochastic Calculus: Generalization of theorems in the case of Stochastic Differential Equations and their applications in 
    • Finance.
    • Medicine (construction of stochastic models for tumor growth)
  • Combinatorics and its applications e.g balls-ballot problems and application to cluster of disease cases
