As our world is becoming more and more complex, Statistics remains the most principled way to make some sense of all this randomness. A quote by Hal Varian, Chief economist at Google, conveys a lot about the current relevance of statistics:
 
“I keep saying that the sexy job in the next 10 years will be statisticians. And I’m not kidding.” 
 
If you are interested in research in any aspect of moderns statistic, be it probabilistic and statistical modeling, Bayesian computation, Monte Carlo methods, machine learning, data analytics, and so on,  please come and have a chat with me, and we may work out a specific project that is suited to you.
