Functional Data Analysis

  • I work in the area of functional data analysis (fda)
  • It is the analysis of a data set that contains functions (curves)
  • Many studies contain data that is measured repeatedly over time (or space) for each unit. This type of data can be viewed as a function of time (or space) 
  •  Anytime data is collected over time/space fda comes handy
  • Examples: Finance, health, climate studies, genetic studies, imaging studies (fmri etc.) 


some Recent work

Association studies

Measurement Error

curve registration

deep learning and functional data analysis

  • using neural networks for prediction in functional regression model
  • using neural networks for outlier detection in functional data
  • using ideas from functional data analysis to add flexibility to sequential neural networks
