Research Topic: Sensitivity of the Empirical Mode Decomposition and its Application to Environmental Data

About the Research topic:

Empirical Mode Decomposition/Hilbert Huang Transform is a newly developed method to deal with non-linear and non-stationary data. In my PhD project, I look at the sensitivity of Empirical Mode Decomposition to Environmental data. To evaluate the study, I use sea level, surface temperature and fire forest danger data. 

Research Interests

I am working on the methodologies of time series analysis. I have been specifically focused on the Empirical Mode Decomposition applied to large non-linear and non-stationary environmental data sets, such as sea level, air surface temperature and bushfire data ..

I do also have extensive experience in public policy. My teaching background has made me interested in gaining a deeper knowledge of social science, public policy and educational methods. To improve the efficiency of the teaching/learning experience, I have investigated the quality of teaching and learning across educational contexts using large set of data.

I would love to extend my research experience within the major project  themes of empirical testing and statistical analysis.
