Top Publications


    Year Title
    2020 Investigating foreign portfolio investment holdings: Gravity model with social network analysis
    Published in   International Journal of Finance and Economics
    2018 Statistical information recovery from multivariate noise-multiplied data, a computational approach
    Published in   Transactions on Data Privacy

Research Overview


  • Optimization of the fitting of linear mixed models to datasets arising from sustainable primary industries. This occurs by exploiting sparsity, multi-threading, efficient third party libraries as well as modern coding practices. Optimizations through statistical reformulations are of particular use in this application.
