Research Interests

I am currently a Phd candidate at the School of Criminal Justice (UniversitÚ de Lausanne) and the Mathematical Institute (University of Leiden).
My research topic is Forensic Statistics, the application of Statistics and Probability to the evaluation of evidence.
I am particularly interested in:
