Statistisk inlärning och inferens för spatiotemporala data
The research group at the Department of Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics is led by Prof. Jun Yu and conducts research in signal/image analysis and statistical learning for spatio-temporal statistics.
We work on tackling theoretical statistical problems and developing statistical methods for solving real-life problems, which originate from various application areas, including automobile industry, biomedical engineering, conference telephony, criminology, epidemiology, forestry, geochemistry and hydrology, radiation oncology, spatial ecology, and sports science.
Regarding the statistical inference studied: statistical learning with sparsity, compressive sensing, hierarchical spatiotemporal modelling, nonparametric density/intensity estimation and smoothing techniques, statistical inference for hidden Markov models and random fields, summary statistics for point processes, and wavelet theory applied to statistical problems.
In terms of data analysis tools: intelligent data sampling using compressive sensing, large-scale environmental data model, multimodal image processing, tree growth models, and general modelling of biological populations in space and time.
