I retired officially in summer 2014, although I hope to continue my scientific activities.

On November 12, 2014 I gave my farewell lecture (in German) with the title "Welch ein Zufall !" ("What a coincidence !"). A recording is available at the Multimedia Portal of ETH and the text is here.

Please note that I do not take new PhD students and I do not have opportunities for internships.

- Spatial statistics and random fields (geostatistics, parameter
estimation for Gibbs fields, image analysis, space-time models)

- Time series analysis (long range dependence, bootstrap methods for
dependent data, general state-space models, particle and ensemble
Kalman filter)

- Environmental modeling (soil, climate)

- Robust statistics and model selection.
