My research focuses on developing and applying Monte Carlo sampling methods to solve complex (non-analytical, non-gaussian, non-linear) problems. I am working on several research projects in the fields of civil engineering (Particle Filtering for online Structural Health Monitoring), and seismology (Markov chain Monte Carlo inversion of seismic data for imaging the Earth's interior).
