Research interests

Long-memory processes, estimation, applications and simulation of Lévy-driven Ornstein-Uhlenbeck processes and spatial processes. Other research activity has been carried on goodness-of-fit testing, especially the exponentiality hypothesis, density estimation, bayesian analysis and correspondence analysis.
