I am interested in methodology and application of statistical methods that help model natural events that evolve over space and time. Of particular interest are natural hazards, environmental variables and diseases. The statistical problems are wide rannging and complex. My personal interests fall in two broad categories-

a. Modelling of spatial and temporal stochastic dependence structures.

b. Efficient computation of big spatio-temporal dependence matrices. 

c. Applications involving the above.
