My reasearch interests are
1. Statistical inference: frequentist and Bayesian methods, Pretest and Shrinkage strategies, generalized confidence interval and generalized p-value.
2. Inference in stochastics processes: estimation in diffusion processes, Estimation and testing in regime-switching Markov processes.
3. Applied probability and Asymptotic theory in statistics: asymptotic properties of estimators and large-sample inference.
