  • Research interest:Simulation, modeling and hypothesis testing. Simulation implies that we create an abstraction of a given system in terms of a set of state variables, their initial values and evolution rules (e.g. discretized dynamical equations), calculate the changed state as a function of one or more independent variables and interpret the results in terms of the original problem statement. Modeling implies that we reduce the description of a given phenomenon in terms of a collection of numerical data, to a description in terms of (approximate) mathematical relations between two or more variables. Hypothesis testing may involve either or both of the above activities and leads to a statistically quantified statement about adoption/rejection of a hypothesis.
