Over the past years, I focused on changepoint detection via fast dynamical programming algorithms. Lately, I have been looking at online changepoint and anomaly detection algorithms. I am also interested in producing scalable techniques robust to those scenarios where the usual normality assumptions fall. Additionally, my interests span from modeling in general to other topics in data science, such as machine learning, and MCMC.
