## Research applied mathematics

#### Bayesian numerical signal processing algorithms

The main focus of my research is on the development of statistically based novel algorithms and methodologies for extracting information from distributed random signals and data. This involves the construction of mathematical and statistical models in the area of signal processing and creation of distributed algorithms and methods for parameter and signal estimation.

## Research interest

- Distributed filtering of nonlinear stochastic signals.
- Bayesian Methods for Machine learning and stochastic optimization.
- Distributed estimation and data fusion algorithms.
- Statistical and Monte Carlo based signal processing methods.
- Application of stochastic signal processing and time series analysis.
- Sampling and signal reconstruction algorithms
- Pedagogical research in the teaching of Mathematics/Programming to Engineers and Computer Scientists.

## Research output

- More than 20 publications in the area of distributed stochastic filtering algorithms in signal processing journals and IEEE signal Processing Conferences.
- Book chapters on particle filtering algorithms and Bayesian Computation.
- Supervised eight MSc theses in the area of distributed estimation and consensus algorithms.
- Supervised ten BSc theses in the area of control systems, signal processing and applied mathematics.
- Several technical reports and scientific seminars on fitting surfaces and nonlinear curves to scattered data.
