University lecturer in Mathematical Statistics at the Department of Mathematics of Uppsala University.


My main interests are research and application within mathematical statistics in particular asymptotical statistics.


Nonlinear regression:
higher order asymptotics for least squares methods, application of saddlepoint approximation to nonlinear regression. That is a collaboration together with Alexander Ivanov (Kiev, Ukraine).

Nonlinear errors-in-variables models:
asymptotical properties of the total least squares estimator, construction of adjusted consistent estimators together with Alexander Kukush ( Kiev Ukraine), nonparametric functional relations.

Project together with Joerg Polzehl (Berlin, Germany), Application of a symmetrized SIMEX

A project together with the Observatory Hamburg, Germany is the application of errors-in-variables models to astrometry.

Project together with Martin Eklund (farmbio.uu.se) on feature selection methods. see report . Here can you download the SimSel 0.1 R-packet zip version .

For further details on my work I refer to the list of publications.
