Welcome to my web page. I am with the Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science, at The University of Hong Kong.

I have been for several years a professor in applied mathematics and statistics in the Department of Mathematics, University of Rennes 1, in Brittany, West France.

These pages would give you some idea on my past and current interests.

Have fun ...
