I am interested in Bayesian hierarchical modelling for panel and longitudinal data, in particular to address problems in econometrics and biology. Recently, I have developed mixture models capable of accommodating skewness and non-Gaussian tail behaviour in econometrics. I have been involved in developing models for systems biology as well, specifically trying to understand gene regulatory networks. I am also interested in objective Bayesian methods and their relationship with measures of information.
