La théorie des probabilités n’est, au fond, que le bon sens réduit au calcul; elle fait apprécier avec exactitude ce que les esprits justes sentent par une sorte d’instinct, sans qu’ils puissent souvent s’en rendre compte” (Pierre-Simon Laplace)


Short: I carry on both fundamental and applied research in the general area of Statistical Signal Processing.

My Theoretical work is somewhere in the frontiers of statistical signal processing, Bayesian analysis, statistical learning, computational and robust statistics.

Some Applications: satellite-based navigation (GNSS); cooperative localisation & navigation; indoor localisation, tracking & navigation; Earth observation; multiple object localisation & tracking; multi-sensor data fusion; communications; intelligent transportation systems, air/unmanned traffic management; life sciences.

Keywords: tbd


Primary Research Lines:

1) Robust Statistical Inference in Dynamic Complex Systems

2) Statistical Signal Processing for Advanced GNSS Receiver Design

3) Robust Localisation, Tracking and Navigation Methods
