Research Areas



Extreme Value Theory applied to Longevity of Humans

There has been a long discussion on whether the distribution of human longevity has a finite or infinite right support. We shall discuss some recent results on Extreme Va...

Renormalized transport of inertial particles

We study how an imposed fluid flow - laminar or turbulent - modifies the transport properties of inertial particles (e.g. aerosols, droplets or bubbles), namely their ter...

A LASSO-type model for the bulk and tail of a heavy-tailed response

As widely known, in an extreme value framework, interest focuses on modelling the most extreme observations - disregarding the central part of the distribution; commonly,...
